Frank Capra made some rather racy movies early on...who knew? It's comforting, I suppose, to see that subtlety is not a quality he exhibited at one time then lost. Stanwyck has a couple of good scenes, but in this melodrama she goes from mousy librarian to starry-eyed girl-in-love to self-sacrificing single mother who gives up her child to be raised by her married lover and his wife--and none of it is where her considerable strengths lie. It sure was easy to pass around babies in those days!

Viewed December 27, 2021. At this early point in her career, Stanwyck could find emotional complexity and interesting shading in any material she’s given. Whenever Capra zeroes in on Stanwyck’s heartbreak or anger, this is downright electrifying — a sequence where she stands frozen, contemplating a violent act she’s just committed, is astonishing, as is the scene where she inadvertently gives up her own child. But the romance itself stays pretty lifeless and the elongated structure is silly.

Well acted and well directed even if it wasn't well-paced. I'm a little conflicted by the story and my inability to like any of the characters.

Adolphe Menjou & Barbara Stanwyck as lovers was more attractive then I imagined. And while the plot is kind of thin and lacking, the two made up for it along with solid direction from Frank Capra. Nothing more then a love drama between two people who can't have each other because wife and career is in the way. Done a million times, but it helps having quality actors do the work and make a adultery story gracious.
