Probably my favorite pre-code film which possesses an uncharacteristically upbeat ending full of hope. A beautiful, saavy, young girl longs to escape the confines of the slums and works her way up through the ranks of the banking corporation and into the upper echelons of society only to discover that money (ah... shall we say... though it be trite) does not buy love. Though too much of a spoiler for some... I will say as a hopeless romantic that love does! For that reason,strangely it is all at once a searing drama, heart-tugging romance, and a commentary on the depths of human emotion and desire. Stanwyck is brilliant. A must see for Pre-Code fans or anyone who celebrates the beauty of love and cherishes the lesson: "To Thine Own Self be True..."
