    Decent soaper of an all-too familiar theme during Depression-era Hollywood -- marital strife due to the wife making more money and being more successful than the husband. Unlike the terrible "Next Time We Love," this movie isn't bad. The wonderful Claudette Colbert is 100% the reason for that, adding real credibility and emotional turmoil to this film. It's the first time I've seen Norman Foster act (he was Claudette's actual husband at the time in their short-lived "open marriage"), and he was okay in his role as the simpering whimp of a man. And he almost made you feel sorry for his character despite all the stupid things he does, especially to Claudette's character. He sort of reminded me of a cross between Ioan Gruffud and Jerry Lewis. Sounded like Jerry, too. Ginger Rogers played the young temptress to the emasculated Foster (she's cute but how could she ever hope to steal any man away from the ultra-sexy Claudette Colbert?). Charles Ruggles rounds out the cast with his portrayal as the helpful friend to Foster. Manacled to such a downer script, the cast does a good job, particularly Claudette. ** out of *****
