| a not bad example of pre-code movies
Found on 'Forbidden Hollywood Part 3', this tale of mail order bride Barbara Stanwyck and her farmer husband George Brent meanders a bit but is a typical example of a pre-code drama. There is liquor, sex, semi-nudity, suggestions of slavery ... and that's just for starters.

Let down a bit by its weak ending and a lack of focus amongst its clichéd minor characters (all of which seem taken from the 'stereotypes manual'), 'The Purchase Price' stands as an OK film, but nothing special.

George Brent here plays something of a muttonhead who doesn't really deserve the luminous Stanwyck (who'd been in the chorus line before turning farmer's wife); but Stanwyck is very good and well worth watching.
