| Good story about small-town society
Ruth (Nancy Carroll) is a bank clerk in a small town where the only diversion for young adults is a dance hall named Willow Springs outside of town. Ruth is pursued by a number of young men, including a wealthy playboy, Romer Sheffield (Cary Grant). She is very successful at keeping them all at arm's length, though she occasionally enjoys tempting them.

After Ruth returns home later than usual, the town's rumor mill--spurred by rival Eva--has a heyday. With her reputation ruined, Ruth makes some choices that are life-altering.

The music that accompanies the opening credits might lead the viewer to expect a madcap comedy. It is nothing of the sort. It is a scathing depiction of small-town society. However, the ending--which is, if nothing else, confusing--suggests that the film is (also) a cautionary tale. Whichever way you interpret it, this film is very interesting.

The acting is good. Nancy Carroll shines. Cary Grant and Randolph Scott are strong in their roles.
