A pre-Code classic starring Barbara Stanwyck at the precise moment she became what we think of as "Barbara Stanwyck"—a tough, sexy dame who took what she wanted and took nothing off nobody never.
Be sure to look for a young John Wayne playing one of Stanwyck's stepping stones on the way to the top.
