Distraught Paul gets drunk and wrecks his car, disfiguring young Dorothy’s face in the process. Out of pity, Paul marries Dorothy. Years later, the apparent perfect marriage of Ted and Jerry falls apart from infidelity on both sides. Inwardly unhappy, popular Jerry lives a party life while Ted sinks into a life of alcoholism.

When Jerry sees Dorothy again, she has second thoughts about where her life is heading.

Film Review

But it's a lot more frank and honest than countless films on the same topic that would be released over the succeeding decade, when the production code wouldn't let filmmakers even acknowledge the existence of things like affairs and divorce.Shearer won her Academy Award for this film, and just try to take your …
