This is an extremely boring, trite, unconvincing melodrama. It stars Constance Cummings as an extraordinarily selfish, unsympathetic show girl who stalks and "shames" Paul Lukas into writing a song for her. Lukas is so "taken" by her antics that he marries her. They have a child, merely because she believes it will make her a better, more sincere performer. Eventually, she gets restless and pays Lukas back for all the good he's done her by falling in love with her leading man. So it goes on...

If this hackneyed storyline isn't enough, the movie is made even more tedious by the lack of humor in it. There's probably only one good laugh in the whole picture.

According to the book "William Wyler: A Talent for Trouble" by Jan Herman, director Wyler was "forced into doing the picture." He "felt it was 'a real disappointment' and couldn't muster the enthusiasm to save it. He always remembered it as 'kind of a screwy picture.'" A real disappointment is putting it mildly. I rate this picture a 3/10.

The only real reason to see it is for Constance Cummings who, in spite of her mediocre acting, looks very pretty, particularly in the middle and towards the end of the film. She displays quite an ample amount of cleavage. There is one scene in particular where Paul Lukas throws her into the shower fully clothed, pulls her out, and proceeds to strip off her wet garment, after putting a towel over her, of course.
