Story of a Depression-downtrodden waif (Blondell) who uses her brains instead of her body to rise from tyro con artist to crime boss. A terrific supporting cast comes along for the rags-to-rackets ride through all the murder and double-crossing.
Joan Blondell, one of Hollywood's most memorable blondes, gets top billing in this protofeminist crime yarn as tough as a taxi dancer's heart. Blondell's first starring role was also a change of pace for a contract player usually cast as a chorus cutie or the male lead's loyal doxy. Instead she plays the title character, a Depression-downtrodden waif who uses her brains instead of her body to rise from tyro con artist to crime boss. A terrific supporting cast - Chester Morris, Allen Jenkins. Mae Busch, Sterling Holloway - comes along for the rags-to-rackets ride through all the murder and double-crossing that make crime melodrama great entertainment. This time with a woman's touch.
Set during the Depression, this crime drama centers upon a basically honest girl who is forced into prostitution by circumstance. She then becomes a gangster's moll where she learns a bitter lesson about the criminal life.
