Audience Reviews for Shopworn


Hopelessly cliche story but Stanwyck rises above it with her great talent and intensity. She looks amazing as well.

Super Reviewer


Pretty good little drama, loses some steam in the 2nd half/last third or so, and the ending is a little weak, too. Again, Barbara Stanwyck was so gorgeous; the biggest problem is when her character becomes successful in the span of one minute of film time, right after showing her getting out the reform prison place (and the judge, whom for some reason sets Kitty up - is he trying to bang the old lady? Don't get it - never gets any comeuppance for his awful behavior.
