A typical Depression tale of upward mobility and a good vehicle for Barbara Stanwyck; you can spot John Wayne in a small part.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Engagingly shocking to audiences who think of old movies as quaint and innocent.

...an amazing film for any age because it is purely about sex. Not X-rated, pornographic sex, but raw, sensual, unequivocal, unmitigated sex, nevertheless.

Baby Face is sort of the ultimate pre-Code film, with its repetitive form %u2014 that same come-hither look, that same goggle-eyed assent from the dude on the receiving end %u2014 almost beggaring belief.

A fascinatingly conflicted artifact of Depression-era do-me feminism.

If you've never seen Stanwyck in a pre-Code film, you've never really seen Stanwyck.

Combustible Celluloid

Inarguably one of the greatest screen actresses of the century, Stanwyck gives one of her strongest performances here, all fire and hunger and pain.

The peppy title tune over the opening credits hardly prepares you for the sordid story that follows...
