Goofs

When Miriam looks up a telephone number, the page we see of the telephone book is obviously not a real one. Several of the telephone exchanges are matched with the wrong addresses. For instance, FOrdham, which was in the Bronx, is used for Park Avenue, as is CHickering, which was near Times Square. See more »

Bette Davis before Warner Bros. gave her good roles...
8 October 2009 | by DoylenfSee all my reviews

Strictly for die-hard Davis fans.

She's a shop girl from the wrong side of the tracks who meets lawyer IAN HUNTER, on a drunk bender, and decides to restore him to his better self on the spur of the moment. Once he's reformed, she has a struggle trying to keep him from former flame KATHARINE Alexander. (For some reason, my computer refuses to put "Alexander" in caps). It's not a typo.

It's a trifle, the kind of film Davis would come to detest in that it was nothing more than a routine melodrama with some comedy interludes from ALISON SKIPWORTH as a landlady who wants to spruce up Bette's ability to mix with IAN HUNTER's society friends.

Made worth a look only for Bette Davis' performance. She's trim, blonde and almost pretty with those Bette Davis eyes lined with mascara. Unfortunately, it's a weak script with a predictable ending. COLIN CLIVE has little to do but he does play a good drunk scene.

TCM is showing this as part of their Depression-era films.
