MUDDLED MESSAGE FOR DEPRESSION-ERA FEMALES
Slight Pre-Coder with Three Engaging Leading Ladies. Jean Harlow, Mae Clarke, and Marie Prevost. Only One would Survive Hollywood into Old Age, Ms.Clarke.
Harlow's Early Exit is Legendary, and Prevost was Immortalized by Kenneth Anger in the Book “Hollywood Babylon” (1981) also a New Wave Song by “Nick Lowe”.
For Pre-Coders there are Numerous Scenes of the Scantily Clad Actresses (except for the rotund Marie) in Varying Degrees of Undress.
The the Plot is Ripe with Adultery and Free Thinking.
Just for Measure, there is a Suicide.
Not Much of a Movie, most Notable as Jean Harlow's First Starring Role, but She is a bit Stiff, but Pretty and Very Upright and Brooding.
