Mervyn LeRoy United States, 1932

Log Lady's rating of the film Three on a Match

An interesting Pre-Code of the descent into squalor and drug addiction variety, so no amusing quips here. Dvorak's performance starts a little wooden, but her subsequent realistic portrayal of a woman who has made bad decisions but who still cares is indeed wonderful. The ending is exceptionally brutal for a 30s film.
