Melodrama expert Frank Borzage directs, composing glamorous close-ups of his femme star in this heart-tugger about a Hester Street girl (Crawford), her con-artist hubby (Alan Curtis) and the shipping magnate (Tracy) smitten by the slum girl. It's a rags-to-riches-to-love's-truer-riches tale, a quintessential example of what the Golden Era called a "woman's picture." And reigning throughout is Crawford, going from factory girl to showgirl to fashion model to woman of means-- all in stunning haute couture.
