| Basically, the story of two young woman who love unwisely...
JEAN HARLOW adds some luminous personality traits to this romantic tale of young women trying to make a success in the big city. Harlow's best friend MAE CLARKE gets her a job as a fashion model where she works, and the two friends are involved with married men. Clarke's fate is an unhappier one--but Harlow gets her man and a happy ending.

MARIE PREVOST is on hand in her usual flip supporting role as comic relief. She ends up with chauffeur ANDY DEVINE.

WALTER BYRON is the wealthy man attracted immediately to Harlow, whose wife won't divorce him until the final reel. Disillusioned, she has returned to the soda clerk job she had at the beginning--but her Prince Charming comes after her with news of his freedom.

Mae Clarke handles her downbeat role with skill. Interesting to note that none of her roles as a long suffering heroine gained her any important roles during the days of the studio contract system in the '30s and '40s. She ended up doing minor parts and then bit roles throughout most of her career, gaining fame as the woman who got the grapefruit pushed in her face by James Cagney, but little in the reward of better roles.

Summing up: A minor trifle, brightened by Jean Harlow's sympathetic portrait of a girl put upon by the men in her life.
