I first read about this film in "Complicated Women" and was eager to see this pre-Code gender-reversal film. What a delight! Chatterton was fantastic, the art deco sets amazing and the costume design mouth-watering. Not to mention an intelligent, funny, and realistic screenplay in which the woman isn't the only one to compromise in the end. After seeing this I am on to more Ruth Chatterton films. I highly recommend this! 10 stars!
