Review by

Poor Ben Hecht! The Production Code completely ruined the former newspaperman's original story about a railroad magnate with women troubles by demanding that Warren William's "affair" with showgirl Ginger Rogers remain platonic, a development that makes for less than satisfying drama and is not a little ludicrous. Happily, the cast, including William, Rogers, Mary Astor and a wonderfully funny Andy Devine, overcomes the plot constrains to a degree and director Roy Del Ruth impresses with one of the longest tracking shots in the history of early talkies.
