The Life and Loves of Millie . . . And the Murder

Wow! What a story! I am amazed that this kind of movie was filmed in 1931. Of course, it could not have been shown in theaters a few years later when Will Hays started severely censoring movies. At the beginning of the story Millie is very naive, and gets married to a wealthy businessman who gives her everything a girl could want . . . except for his love.

Millie files for divorce when she catches her husband kissing his girlfriend, and she is on her own. Millie gets a job behind the counter on the first floor of a skyscraper selling candy, gum, newspapers, cigars and what not. Every man in town wants Millie, but Millie holds out against all the men until a newspaper reporter finally catches her heart.

Millie is of the ‘once bitten’ mind now, and she is very willing to live in sin with the reporter, but refuses to marry him. Tommy Rock is a decent sort of fellow who would never cheat on Millie. He isn’t the flashy playboy type at all. Millie is finally happy with her man, . . . Until she discovers that he has a girlfriend on the side.

Twice burned, red-headed Millie goes a bit insane when it comes to men. Millie determines to never be fooled by the affections of any man, because no man can be true to only one woman. She will become a gold-digging woman who will create a love parade and she will tempt men, use men, and then toss them to the curb, moving on to the next man.

Life is fun with her endless string of men, and Millie will never again be loyally attached to any of them after the loving is over. That would be the end of it if it were not for the murder. In the big city men use women as play-toys, and women use men as play-toys, and all is fun and games until it isn't. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
