Jean Harlow and Clark Gable cemented their status as MGM’s most bankable star pairing with this sizzling pre-Code tale of love outside the law. A cynical blonde who is not above swindling her dates, Ruby (Jean Harlow) is sure she’s met her soul mate when small-time con man Eddie (Clark Gable) winds up hiding out from the cops in her bathtub. When one of his schemes goes awry and the now-pregnant Ruby winds up in a reformatory, the fugitive Eddie must risk his freedom to redeem the woman he loves.
