Steve D The whole story really goes nowhere. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/02/24 Full Review acsdoug D At the depths of the Great Depression amid massive poverty and unemployment the characters in this drama are not worried about anything other than their relationship troubles. I'm find it interesting that movies from the early 1930s are almost always upbeat. People back then really had good outlooks, modern day film makers would wallowing in the misery. Anyway, while this movie doesn't come close to classic status, it's not bad for what it is, the bad acting by Alan Dinehart notwithstanding. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A married architect is stuck in a loveless marriage, but then find love again when he starts an affair with a dress designer. However, melodrama ensures when his daughter falls in love with his mistress' brother. The drama isn't all that interesting, but the pre-production code elements of sex outside of marriage and martial infidelity make the tepid drama a bit more entertaining. Kay Francis was the only actor in the film I was familiar with. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Can a movie with a rediculously melodramatic script and a terrible director be worth seeing...apparently. Charming performances from Gloria Stuart Roland Young and even the male ingenue Alen Vincent save it. The desperation and transition are present: the Depression and the Empire State Building are both in the background. And Kay Francis had that "special something" which keeps one watching her even when she is says really corny stuff. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Kay suffers in mink and splendor once again. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member not bad but not as suggestive as the title might imply Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
