The story follows lovers Ann (Stanwyck) and Dick Ives (Rennie) who don't care that they're having sex out of wedlock. Ann doesn't care to be wed because she knows that love dies when one marries. Dick, on the other hand, thinks that maybe marriage isn't so bad. Pressured by his father and rumours that float around, they get hitched but, lo and behold, troubles soon follow the marriage.
This was Stanwyck's first film for Warner Bros..
- The Alcoholic: Played for Laughs with Georgie (Clive Butterworth). He's always trying to procure liquor or stealing some.
- Awful Wedded Life: It's what Ann fears if she gets married. And it is what happens.
- The Casanova: Price is one, but he really is disappointed when he hears that Ann is getting married.
- Deadpan Snarker: Duckie which is of no surprise since she's played by Joan Blondell.
- Double Standard: Of the cheating heart edition where its okay for a man to cheat when hes bored of his wife but not for the woman.
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Said but none other than Joan Blondell.Ann Vincent! Dont tell me youre so old fashioned that you wear hangin my head undergarments!Once a girl is headed to the altar, she becomes so conventional.
- Have a Gay Old Time: This nice exchange using the nickname for Richard
You know Ive gone after Dick once or twice!Ive always been in love with Dick!I happen to love Dick!I came here for Dicks sake!
- Only Known by Their Nickname: When never learn Duckies real name.
- Product Placement: A line in the opening credits says "Brunswick radios used exclusively." Sure enough, later in the movie a character is shown tuning a radio with the Brunswick logo prominently displayed.
- Your Cheating Heart: Margie and Dick have an affair, and Margie will stop at nothing to be with him.
