Here is a blatant affront to generations of American provincial female teachings that value virginity over sexual freedom. Lily likes giving it away, for a cause - herself.

It's easy to see an anti-feminist 'Just look what happens to women who break the rules' underneath what is most obviously simply straight-up salaciousness.

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

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

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

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