Goofs

Lola calls to tell Ken she won't be home for dinner. He leaves the apartment, throwing his apron out in the hallway. When Lola comes home, she finds the apron on the living room floor, and the light in the kitchen turned off, but Ken apparently didn't come home again before she did, and couldn't have done either.

Quotes

Doctor: Haven't you brought enough unhappiness to your husband without jeopardizing his life?
Lola Davis: I...?!?
Doctor: Let me give you a little advice. One way or another, a man will find a woman to look out for him not only when he's sick but when he's well. That's something you so-called "modern girls" never seem to count on. You talk about freedom, because you think it's something men have and cherish. But they don't. They hate it. They get along best when they're *not* free. It's human nature, that's all. They need...

Intolerable Message Movie with Some Pre-Code Appreciations
1 March 2015 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

A Depression Era Message that Seems Unwise and Unwilling to Accept the Fact that People were Struggling Mightily to Make Ends Meet and Many Women were Attempting to Help by Attaining Jobs and Manage Marriage at the Same Time by Necessity.

The Preaching Here is Misguided and Unrealistic, Not to Mention Chauvinistic. It Says Basically that Women Need to Stay in the Home and Take Care of Their Husband's Needs No Matter What. It is the Same Argument Fundamentalist Make Concerning a Biblical Account that is Interpreted as "Women are Subservient".

The (in real life) Holier Than Thou and Hypocritical Loretta Young is the Wifely Beauty Here and Norm Foster is the Husband. Miss Young is Beautiful and has Acting Skills but Norman Foster Made a Good Career Choice Turning to Directing. His On Screen Performances Leave Much to be Desired.

There is a Good Supporting Cast and there are Some Pre-Code Era Moments to Appreciate, but the Movie's Message is Intolerable in Any Era.
