William Powell plays a gigolo romancing a married older woman and flirting with her daughter played by Carole Lombard. A chance encounter with a socialite played by Kay Francis forces him to reconsider his lifestyle, but perhaps too late.

Powell’s sheer charisma overcomes the flimsy plot and his suspect casting. I couldn’t buy him as a gigolo, but I could buy him as a con man. Perhaps that’s why the dark ending surprised me.
