Barbara Stanwyck excels as small-town librarian Lulu Smith, who spends her savings on a cruise to Havana, and falls for a charmer who appears to reciprocate her feelings. Compassionate but never sentimental, Capra’s dark, pacy melodrama is an insightful study of female desire, suffering and strength of spirit. The star receives superb support from Menjou and Bellamy, while Joseph Walker’s camerawork is exquisite.
