No-nonsense Anne Vincent (Barbara Stanwyck) states her position flatly: “Nearly every girl I know is either unhappily married or unhappily divorced.” When she does acquiesce to a marriage proposal from Dick Ives (James Rennie), both Anne and Dick soon begin to commit adultery. But Anne’s solution to their marital problems scandalizes everyone in this pre-Code classic.
