|Gary Cooper and Miriam Hopkins|
"Immorality may be fun," advertising exec Max Plunkett (Horton) cautions both March and Cooper in turn, "but it isn't fun enough to take the place of 100 percent virtue and three square meals a day." The general message of the film, however, seems to be that only the first part of this advice applies. Immorality is fun, and people need to have more fun in their lives. When they stop having fun and start worrying about how to be successful, they lose track of the things that matter most. Real success--the kind that makes you happy, not just wealthy, comes from following your heart, not your bank account.
