| oops. odd love triangle.
Jean Muir, George Brent, and Verree Teasdale star in this oldie from Warner Brothers. Big, movie star Helen (Muir) gives her key to her boyfriend Stuart (Brent). when Stuart arrives, he meets the daughter Lois (Teasdale). similar plot theme, where Mom's boyfriend seems to be spending a lot of time with her daughter, in Mildred Pierce, or maybe Imitation of Life, with Claudette Colbert. Directed by the feisty Archie Mayo. he was probably best known for directing bogart in petrified forest. Screenplay by Mary C. McCall, who had written a couple novels, and did a whole lot of writing for hollywood, including a bunch of the Maisie films. It's quite good. snuck in just BEFORE the film code was being so strictly enforced, so the fact that Helen gave her apartment key to a man would be just shocking a couple years later. it's insinuated (implied ?) that Helen gave mac the key for a reason... hint. hint. it's pretty good.
