CGiii Comment

Early appearances of Bette Davis and Humphrey Bogart - in a somewhat rushed little film with big ideas.

The lesbian interest is slight - a very short scene in a women's reform school where men are branded 'trouble' and should be left completely alone.

This is a morality piece - it's is essentially about the loss and gain of dignity - powerful stuff...but, handled with a clumsy and unsubtle hand.

The(ir) Blurb...

Three women who were childhood schoolmates take different paths in life. Vivian marries a very wealthy lawyer and has an adorable boy. Mary, on the other hand, takes the hard road through reform school. After a superstitious faux pas, Vivian's luck turns. She strays from her steadfast husband to a life of debauchery and alcoholism. Meanwhile, Mary turns her life around and not only wins the heart of Vivian's ex-husband, but also becomes a loving step-mother to Vivian's only child. Then Vivian's worthless boyfriend makes a desperate move.
