The vitriol and hurt coursing through this prickly, scandalous pre-code melodrama from 1932 may wrong-foot those who had director Frank Capra pegged as head cheerleader for good ol' American democracy and cheery, affirmative humanist values.
Wrestling with how a working mother can find fulfillment without being forced to choose between her career and her children is still a relevant topic today - therefore so is Forbidden.
This is sadly disappointing stuff from such masters of their craft.
Well before the end the whole thing collapses into rip-roaring melodrama.
Overblown meller that Missy Stanwyck makes worth watching, as she always did.
