This overwrought melodrama about a Broadway actress and her relationship with a married playwright was salvaged by George Cukor after the version directed by George Fitzmaurice was declared unreleasable by RKO Pathé executives. Cukor replaced original leading man Phillips Holmes with Joel McCrea, whose stilted performance leaves viewers wondering what Constance Bennett sees in his character. It doesn't help that the plot is laughably ludicrous.
