Decent little pre-code quickie.
Inconsequential love story between former streetwalker Lombard and gruff taxi driver O'Brien. Will he discover her past? Can they stay together? These are the small big questions posed here. Several scenes of everyday chat that would have been excised from most movies remain, and with a runtime just over an hour doesn't allow for much development. They manage to insert a murder and case of mistaken identity to contribute SOME kind of tension. Lombard is not great in serious role but she looks stunning. Adorned in classy dress and jewelry back then, hookers have really gone downhill since the '30s.
