This weepy and ragged melo about two society women, their lovers and how all cross each other’s paths has little outside its cast to be recommended. Tallulah Bankhead has personality, charm and a voice loaded with s.a.

In the story, after she has left her husband and is on the downgrade, upon finding her former lover is having an affair with her rival girl friend, the many speaks Bankhead visits would even surprise prohibition officers.

Cast, as a whole, deports in a manner suggesting they were under orders to give way before Bankhead. Clive Brook suffers the most. Ordinarily a fine actor, he slumps here in trying to get over some of the silly dialog. Phoebe Foster, who plays the feme nemesis, and in a totally unsympathetic role, gives an even performance.
