Dan Bellows finds former stage star Joyce Heath a penniless drunk and takes her to his Connecticut home for rehabilitation. Unaware that she is married to Gordon, he asks his fiancée Gail to free him and offers to sponsor Joyce in a play. When Gordon refuses to give Joyce a divorce, she runs the car into a tree crippling him for life. Joyce urges Dan return to Gail, opens her play, and begs Gordon for forgiveness.

|Trivia||Though Bette Davis was very proud of the Oscar she won for this film, she didn't think she deserved it that year - in her opinion, Katharine Hepburn should have won for Alice Adams (1935). Davis always thought she won as compensation for not even being nominated for her star-making performance in Of Human Bondage (1934) the previous year. See more »|

Restful here, isn't it?
Joyce Heath: The whole countryside seems to have found peace.
Don Bellows: A person could find peace too.
Joyce Heath: No, you'll only find that in yourself and when you do, you might as well be dead.
Don Bellows: Dead?
Joyce Heath: Rest In Peace is for tombstones.
Don Bellows: And for the living?
Joyce Heath: Desire. To want something. To obtain that desire and live up to every moment of it. And then go on leaving yesterday behind. On and on. Higher and higher.
