      Richard Brody New Yorker The director Dorothy Arzner infuses this glossy romantic comedy, from 1937, set in the pleasure domes of Europe, with acrid insight and theatrical flair. Nov 9, 2020 Full Review Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine [Joan Crawford's] problem is always the same - she has to get herself married to one of two dazzling screen heroes. Oct 11, 2019 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Though not one of her strongest features, it's still worth seeing this melodrama, made by Dorothy Arzner, the only woman director in the studio system, and starring Joan Crawford in one of her typical parts. Rated: C+ Jan 9, 2011 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Its plot features the stale idea of a woman on the bottom rung trying to climb the social ladder. Rated: C- Nov 1, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

      Steve D Entertaining and surprisingly well written. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Tom M Pretty standard fair. Female lead has to choose between two men, one rich, and one not. Of course she loves the poor one, but, she wants to be rich too. Crawford is very good at times, particularly funny in the first 30 minutes. Supporting cast is dull with Young and Tone playing the same characters they always play. Unusual to see Burke play an unpleasant aristocrat. Crawford does look lovely throughout. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/08/20 Full Review Audience Member Improbable romantic drama but solidly directed and well played by Joan and company. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Though not one of her strongest features, it's still worth seeing this melodrama, made by Dorothy Arzner, the only woman director in the studio system, and starring Joan Crawford in one of her typical parts. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Liked this film. A bit querky. It might be true that if you're together in real life, there's no chemistry on screen...this sort of proves it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member a case of mistaken identify fuels this drama directed by the ONLY woman director (at that time).
