Sick of her life in New York City, nightclub dancer Olivia Riley (Joan Crawford) moves to Wisconsin to marry Henry Linden (Melvyn Douglas), a well-to-do farmer. Complications arise when Olivia and Henry's brother, David (Robert Young), become deeply attracted to each another.

    Good drama with a gem of a performance from the great Margaret Sullavan. Everyone else is good but she is exceptional.
