Joan Blondell, one of Hollywood's most memorable blondes, gets top billing in this protofeminist crime yarn as tough as a taxidancer's heart. Blondell's first starring role was also a change of pace for a contract player usually cast as a chorus cutie or themale lead's loyal doxy. Instead she plays the title character, a Depression-downtrodden waif who uses her brains instead of her bodyto 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.
