Besides, Miss Winter's is a lady.
Sure she is. And you stick up for her, innocent.
Oh, I ain't so innocent.
You are. That's why I'm so crazy about you.

Okay, I know this is a dated, old fashioned film, made transcendent by the always radiant Ann Harding. Would a woman today sacrifice herself the way Virgie did? I very much doubt it. But it's idealization of such sacrifice really touched me...perhaps because I know how unrealistic it is to expect such behavior today, or even then. Still. I love this film. I'd never seen it before today, March 29, 2015, thanks to who else? TCM, of course. I thought I'd seen every Ann Harding movie ever made... again, thanks to TCM...but they must have made a zillion movies during the 30s, because almost every week, new one turn up...new for me, that is. Bless you TCM...and bless you Ann Hadding, wherever you are...
