Greed, ambition, politics, and sex collide in this pre-Code scorcher. Cynical Marian Martin (Joan Crawford) believes she can have a life without marriage when she moves from a small town to New York City. She meets married attorney Mark Whitney (Clark Gable) and creates a new identity for herself as divorced woman-of-the-world Mrs. Moreland, living in an apartment paid for by Whitney. But when Whitney runs for governor and a reporter uncovers the story of the affair, Marian must choose between her carefree life and marriage with the man she loves.
