Great Movie but TCM's Synopsis All Wrong!
Saw this for the first time recently and I always enjoy Norma Shearer - she's so natural for the age! But when I first read the brief description in TCM's monthly guide - "sophisticated woman risks her marriage for love of a ruthless schemer" - I was expecting another movie entirely! She is not married, rather, is struggling with the idea of it - trying to be "modern" she takes up with a man who, we're lead to believe, feels the same way. So what she risks is her reputation after she is seemingly spurned by this fellow and starts out to play the field herself. But just a wonderful piece with Neil Hamilton and Robert Montgomery - not to mention the fabulous Marjorie Rambeau - providing expert support! Thanks TCM!
Catch Ray Milland as Extra at Bar
- Jeff Solis
Too bad Norma never got to make afilm with Ray Milland as her co-star, they'd have played well together. Watch her flirt with him in his tiny bit as patron at the bar. This film is never mentioned in Milland's credits. Shearer looks great throughout and reprises her "The Divorcee" role. No wonder the film was a blockbuster at the box-office!
This is such a good film!
- Jehanne Lily
This is a film I've never seen before. Norma Shearer was such a talented actress. Being such a classic movie devotee I always know that any film that has these magic words,"Gowns by Adrian," will be so elegant. Someone should write a book with the title "Gowns By" covering the great designers of the 30s and 40s. They certainly knew the meaning of glamour back then. Can't say that for designers today. Adrian, Dolly Tree and Irene being my favorites.
