CGiii Comment

The first Hollywood film to feature lesbianism.

Barbara Stanwyck became the first American actress to portray a lesbian character in a feature film - if only it was any good then it would be such an achievement.

The acting is overwrought, the script taken from the bottom of a Gin bottle - neither reality nor talent are present in this miscast dirge.

But...and, it has to be said - still, an important piece of work.

The(ir) Blurb...

At the Doll House, a 1930's New Orleans bordello, Hallie is the main attraction both for clients and for Jo, the madame. Her comfortable if tedious life is disrupted by the arrival in town of Dove Linkhorn, her true love of three years before who is now searching for her. When Linkhorn learns the truth of her profession he triggers a chain of events involving a number of people, including the young Kitty with whom he travelled from Texas and who is now the Doll House newest recruit.
