  • A stark look at the Great depression.

    This movie was filmed way back in 1932, but aside from the clothing could be just as applicable today as it was then. The story centers around two people, a man and a woman, who are both well-off financially: he has a sales job that pays $20,000 per year (remember, we're talking 1932) while she has substantial wealth. They discuss marriage but are unable to come to an agreement. He wants to continue working and be the provider in the family while she wants him to quit worrying about work and go on extravagant trips with her which she intends to finance; so, they can't quite come together on the marriage. Then through economic circumstances she loses her fortune and he loses his job. Neither knows the plight of the other until she spills the beans about her loss and offers to marry him. When he tells her he also lost his job she decides that 'love' only goes so far and won't provide her with the cushy life she's used to. So off she goes trying to find a rich socialite somewhere who will take her because of who she is while putting on a front of still being rich. It doesn't work and she finds her life deteriorating to the point where she becomes a wealthy guy's mistress. The man she almost married crosses her path again and she realizes what she has become and leaves the rich fellow. Things get worse and she finds herself waiting in soup lines hoping for a meal which she sometimes gets, but sometimes doesn't get. The man finds her again and this time they marry, realizing that they really do love each other. They struggle through dead-end job leads and he is injured terribly trying to fill a job vacancy as a 'scab' by driving a truck for a company whose workers are on strike. With no money to pay doctor bills or buy medicine for her husband she resorts to prostitution. Finally he lands a good job and the movie ends on a happy note. While that was good medicine for folks of the time, reality is not always so kind.

    This pre Code film may not be great art but it does show what life might have been like without any safety net. Bill is ejected onto the streets when his job disappears; Carol loses all her money and becomes a man's mistress to support herself. After she and Bill are reunited and he is injured in a car wreck, she becomes a prostitute to pay the bills. During the film both of them are shown trying to get work and being rejected over and over. They are just 2 among millions in trouble. No job, no money, no home, no food.When there is so much talk of cutting back the programs that originated in the 30's, this film shows what the alternative is.
