Time Out says

Turn-of-the-century melo about three sisters (Davis, Louise, Bryan) and their romantic problems, most pressing of which is Davis' fling with dipso-journalist Errol Flynn. Not content with this, the picture has an intriguing political background, and abruptly tosses in the San Francisco earthquake, from which Davis takes refuge in a brothel, where tarts with heart nurse her back to health. Beginning with Roosevelt's election and ending with Taft's, the film may actually be about the emancipation of women, a concept that would have shaken the foundations of Jack Warner's office, since he, more than any other mogul, kept stars like Davis on a tight, legally-binding leash.
