In the opening scene, Joan Crawford's character, Diane Lovering, is shown sitting in the back of an open-cockpit racing boat, racing across New York harbor for an extended period. We see her get splashed and sprayed on from all different directions. Yet a moment later when the boat docks and Diane steps out, she is completely dry - not a drop of water anywhere on her, and her hair and clothing are perfectly neat. See more »
Middling MGM romance about a woman torn between two men. As the film starts, Joan Crawford is in a relationship with married Otto Kruger. Otto thinks his wife will graciously consent to a divorce. But wifey shows up and says nix to that. So Joan goes on a cruise to think about things and meets handsome rancher Clark Gable. You can see where it's headed. Joan gradually falls for Clark but she's still torn about Otto, whose wife has finally agreed to a divorce. When you hear the terms of the divorce and that Kruger was willing to accept them, you'll be ill. Really a fairly depressing movie for a romancer. But it's got the MGM spit & shine and a great cast. So check it out and decide for yourself.
