Not much to add to the previous review.
The story rather skillfully plays its cards one at a time, revealing that things are not quite what they were supposed to be at first sight.
One might consider that its initial setting in a ranch environment is slightly strained and artificial - is it likely that an ambitious aspiring opera singer would take any interest in the first place in an ordinary cowboy who will not be able to do much for her ambitions?
Except if one considers her as a 100% amoral social climber, starting with the lowest step just because she has no other way, but eager to climb quickly step by step up to the top, like the character of Stanwyck in the film Baby Face. Which would make her even more unsympathetic than she appears - actually she seems ready to cling to her wealthy farmer, at least so long as he bankrolls her.
