One of George Cukor's worst films due to lack of sympathetic charcater, made worse by Joan Crawford's lackluster performance; MGM queen Norma Shearer turned down the role because she didn't want to play a mature woman with children!
Odd film especially for a Crawford vehicle about a shallow socialite who takes up religion on a whim with an overly simplistic ending. Suffers from not having anyone to really root for outside the minor character of the main character's daughter Blossom. Both Joan and March's characters are selfish and for the most part thoughtless fools. This was the screen debut, in a wordless bit, of Susan Peters and Dan Dailey in a slightly larger part. Also keep a sharp eye out for Joan Leslie and Gloria De Haven in tiny parts just starting out. Someone who has a larger part and actually attracted quite a bit of notice in it moving her forward to larger parts than she had been cast previously is Rita Hayworth. She's ravishing although not quite fully arrived at her star persona just yet. Still a brunette she handles her small supporting role well injecting a touch of pathos into a sketchily drawn part.
