Movie Info

Henry Beaumont directed this verbose adaptation of Rachel Crother's play. Ann Harding plays Claire Woodruff, the wife of philandering publisher Rogers Woodruf (Frank Morgan). Myrna Loy is Mary Howard, a lithe and beautiful writer of novels with whom Rogers is in love. Meanwhile, her friend Jimmie Lee (Robert Montgomery), a frosty newspaper man who continually puts down her novel writing, is actually in love with her. When Claire and Mary finally meet up with each other to discuss characters in a new book Mary is writing, Claire, in a blunt and common-sensical way, provides Mary with her own personal take on love and philandering husbands.

It all terribly civilized and Myrna and Alice Brady are good but the Joan Crawford/Greer Garson remake is better.

A very good drama, but very talky. Some of the movie is really boring, and you understand what the film is trying to say, but they keep telling you over and over. A nice ending, though.
