This film was first telecast in Chicago Thursday 24 January 1957 on WBBM (Channel 2), followed by Omaha 15 February 1957 on WOW (Channel 6), by Norfolk VA 1 May 1957 on WTAR (Channel 3), by Minneapolis 25 May 1957 on KMGM (Channel 9) , by Albuquerque 28 May 1957 on KOAT (Channel 7), by Philadelphia 7 October 1957 on WFIL (Channel 6), by Miami 11 November 1957 on WCKT (Channel 7), by Seattle 22 November 1957 on KING (Channel 5) and in Portland OR 15 December 1957 on KGW (Channel 8) ; in San Francisco it found itself in the unhappy situation of being broadcast on the morning of 22 November 1963 on KGO (Channel 7), repeatedly, and sadly, but understandably, interrupted by the latest news updates from Dallas. In New York City and Los Angeles this title would have been included in the MGM film library then under the control of WCBS (Channel 2) and KTTV (Channel 11), respectively, but there is no reliable documentation that it was ever televised at this time in either of these major markets, most likely because of sponsors resistance to its age and the severely pre-code aspects of its basic story.

But Carol, this bank is your guardian. We're living in 1932, but you persist in spending money as if it were still '29, before the crash. You've forced me to eliminate your charities - even your father's most beloved project - the Morgan Home for Girls.

Fine. I don't believe in delinquent girls - silly weaklings.
But our records show that twenty-nine percent of them went on the street because they didn't have a bed to sleep in.

The wonderful Tallulah Bankhead shines in her last Hollywood film of the 30s, playing a spoiled heiress who loses her money and her man (Robert Montgomery), as well as her dignity, on the way to learning what is important. Typical weepie of the early 30s is a terrific vehicle for Bankhead in the kind of role often played by Constance Bennett----glamorous, slinky, and bitchy. Excellent dramatic support from the usually comic Hugh Herbert.
