Arzner's internal critique of Hollywood ideology (woman as silent object of male scrutiny). It works within the confines of a stock vaudevillian golddiggers comedy-drama, tagging along with the old vamp/virgin dichotomy between dancers Ball and O'Hara until the latter upsets the spectacular equation by turning on her (the) audience of leering males with her observations.
