“It ain’t polite, baby, but it’s what ya want.”

Penned by gossip columnist Adela Rogers St. Johns and loosely based on her own upbringing, Norma Shearer stars in this lusty tale of what happens when a nice girl falls for a bad boy.

To the horror of her lawyer father (Lionel Barrymore), young socialite Jan Ashe falls for a notorious gangster (Clarke Gable). Finding herself trapped in a love triangle, Jan risks totaly ruination after their sordid affair.

Film writers and critics Pamela Hutchinson and Christina Newland present some of Hollywood’s most risqué films (all brand new remasters courtesy of Park Circus and Warner Bros.) made before the 1930's Hays code was enforced in Pre-Code Hollywood: Rules Are Made to be Broken.
