You don't appreciate her. She's the only honest woman I've ever met. There's nothing of the hypocrite about Miss D. That's more than you can say about the men she comes in contact with. Look at them. A pack of spineless "Yes"-men. All after her for her money. She sees through them. That's why she tosses them aside. Just as Napoleon would have dismissed a ballet girl. Why, she's never met a man yet that's worthy of her. And she never will.

I first read about this film in "Complicated Women" and was eager to see this pre-Code gender-reversal film. What a delight! Chatterton was fantastic, the art deco sets amazing and the costume design mouth-watering. Not to mention an intelligent, funny, and realistic screenplay in which the woman isn't the only one to compromise in the end. After seeing this I am on to more Ruth Chatterton films. I highly recommend this! 10 stars!
