A sort of poor man's version of THE BLUE ANGEL has Loy playing a cabaret singer who goes through men like tissues from a box. Manners is a young naive type who becomes entranced with the haughty woman only to be cast aside for wealthier middle-aged men. Young is the nice girl who

likewise tosses aside the youngster for the older Tearle. Some guys just have no luck at all. This is entertaining material with some good performances, particularly by the utter vamp Loy. In one scene she wears a white bikini sitting astride an elephant. When the beast's trunk swung up between

her legs, many a blue nose turned purple. Directed with some style, this is a remake of a 1915 silent feature taken from a Broadway play.
