A movie about, essentially, the perils of revenge sex (for women, at least).
Hysterical early talkie melodrama.
It's doubtful that this melodrama, in which Norma Shearer challenges society's double standards about sexual mores by flirting with several men, could have been made after 1934 due to strictures of the Production Code.
Mesmo que supostamente denuncie o machismo da época, o próprio filme é machista, moralista e repleto de personagens desprezíveis, sendo verdadeiramente repugnante.
Refreshingly excited about female sexuality for a Hollywood movie, though pretty tame stuff all in all.
Surpisingly strong, effective early talkie from usually tepid MGM
[Shearer] certainly deserved her Oscar for this one.
An okay and slightly interesting 30s pic that displays some taboos that you don't see later on after Hollywood decides to be more "moral" in its portrayals. That's about it though. It doesn't stand a chance when compared to modern films about womens' sexuality.
This movie is okay, it's just like a lot of other movies with similar plots about divorced couples, and the predictable happy ending, of course. Not bad, but not good either.
Creaky antique, considering the difference in acting styles between now and then Shearer is good not great and its interesting to see the frankness which the subject is dealt with in this pre-code drama but its hard to understand her decision since her husband is a infantile louse.
A good early vehicle for Norma Shearer. She normally played good girls, but she talked her husband, movie mogul Irving Thalberg, into letting her play this saucy role. It won her an Oscar. On their 3rd anniversary, a woman finds out that her husband has been unfaithful. He says it "meant nothing", but when she evens the score by sleeping with his best friend, the husband calls her a tramp and leaves her (double standard, anyone?) She then takes on a number of lovers while all the time wanting her husband back. Kinda of a sappy ending, but a well-done movie, with a racy theme in the years before the Production Code was enforced.
