    This is a predictable, yet pleasant and watchable little movie. Not exceptional and not bad. It follows the Pygmalion story formula of an older person training a naive upstart. In this case, Kay Francis is instructing Mildred Coles in prosperity through dishonesty. She teaches Coles how to feign interest and use practiced lines with rich men, manipulating them into sharing the wealth. The movie's light tone keeps this morally repugnant behaviour from being too upsetting and its resolution conveys a romantic and morally agreeable perspective. As Kay's protg, I found Mildred Coles to be a rather typical ingenue, albeit likable enough that I could care about her feelings and enjoy watching her. Kay Francis plays a character who is worried about being past her prime, but her performance is far from stale. She's just as spirited and charmingly confident as she was in the comedic performances she gave when younger. It's nice to see her generously 'pass the torch' to younger people in the movie and in real life by making it.Another thing I liked was the presence of Margaret Hamilton as a wise-cracking assistant. It's always fun to see her in comedic roles since she's known for playing The Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz". I couldn't help but wonder why her character seems to have no life of her own, seemingly existing just to console Coles and Francis or observe and comment on their situations. Thank you T.C.M. for showing this movie as part of a January 13 Kay Francis birthday movie marathon.

    There's a lot of excellent movies out there that not even Turner Classic Movies is allowed to play, but I wish they would show this one -it's one of Kay Francis' last films. It's an RKO film so I'm guessing that, unlike Kay's early Paramount features, is in the Turner Library. Hopefully they schedule this one soon.
