The real star of this movie is Ann Dvorak (who was also great in the 1932 version of "Scarface" with Paul Muni), not Bette Davis or Joan Blondell. It was good to see a portrait of a woman, who was not a monster, but just didn't love her husband. It's a little slow a first, but picks up. The portion of the film, with the girls a youngsters, was interesting because we don't usually see a realistic portrail of kids. This movie is like a "Time Machine" into 75 years ago.
