Movie Info

Barbara Stanwyck, displayed in all her pre-Code glory, once again plays "damaged goods" in Warner Bros.' The Purchase Price. Hard-boiled nightclub singer Joan Gordon (Stanwyck) gets fed up being the kept woman of her married boss, bootlegger Ed Fields (Lyle Talbot). Fleeing New York City, she ends up in North Dakota as the mail-order bride of wheat farmer Jim Gilson (George Brent). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Brent and Stanwyck do a nice job of opposites falling in love.

Audience Reviews for The Purchase Price

This movie is both cute and realistic at times. It's a pretty good movie, and Stanwyck gives a good performance, but the rest of the cast is just okay, this movie could have been better, I think, but it's still pretty good.
