Chicago Reader review:
A young Barbara Stanwyck, in her third feature film, is the highlight of this early talkie (1930) by Frank Capra. She's a Broadway baby who falls in love with playboy Ralph Graves; they can't marry because his family objects to her past. The melodrama doesn't bring out the best of Capra's talents, and much of the film is stiff and uninteresting. But Stanwyck, still in the process of assembling her screen persona, has a softness and vulnerability she would later shuck; she's like a tough-talking Janet Gaynor.
Here (and above) is the opening.
