Fair Wellman entry that couldve been better if perhaps Loretta Young or Ann Dvorak was in the lead. As it is, a solid pre-Code flick that has an unfotunately overly dramatic and preachy screenplay. Still, with this, Heroes For Sale, Safe In Hell, etc, Wellman hit his stride in the early 30s. Pretty good stuff. 3 stars.
After losing everything, Jenny lives to provide for her son. She is kind of a tragic hero, and I find it intriguing to see a woman have this role, considering this is a 30s movie! However, she's a mother first and a survivor second. Being able only to love remotely, she is certainly proficient in showing that love. Especially the ending shows a beautiful commitment only motherly love could offer. A pleasant watch!
