Early Ruskin script does a reverse Pygmalion as a society girl (Lois Moran) tries to make a “gentleman” out of a former bootlegger (Charles Bickford). Moran and Bickford have terrific chemistry, and their scenes elevate the picture in extraordinary ways, making Riskin’s dialogue pop wonderfully. And for a solid two thirds this is quite the entertaining comedy of manners with a love triangle thrown in for added complications. The third act “return” of Moran’s “pre-movie” lover almost threatens to derail the whole affair, and it’s easy to groan when the climactic scenes take place in a courtroom setting considering how was fun was being had prior, but the ending sets an equilibrium both tonally and in terms of enjoyment. Beaudine directs group scenes quite nicely, giving much space and different direction to everyone involved. Title is a bit more sordid than the content.
