A classic, riveting, Pre-Code film about a woman who manipulates men to get what she wants. Barbara Stanwyck, in one of her most famous roles, is magnificent, tough, but sympathetic. She makes you understand why her character acts as she does and you cheer her on. Also terrific is Theresa Harris, a black actress who plays Stanwyck's maid but is actually her friend. The relationship depicted between their two characters was rare in movies at that time. The rest of the cast is also great, including a very young John Wayne, who had not yet become a star.

Pretty risqué for 1933. This prompted the film industry to start rating films. Great story of a woman who eventually got what she needed. Beautiful fashion!
