Good Girls go to Heaven and Bad Girls . . .

Just like so many times in life, the front story is about two determined men fighting each other for business and prosperity . . . but the real story is about the two women behind the men. The Two men are Joel McCea, as a young penniless entrepreneur looking for his big break, and the other man is Seattle society businessman Frederick Marsh, played by Gavin Gordon. One woman is a sweet and innocent society girl played by the legendary Jean Arthur, and the other woman is also a drop-dead gorgeous gal named Cherry . . . and with a name like 'Cherry' you all know what kind of past she has!

So here we are . . . two men who hate each other and want to destroy each other . . . one was raised in wealth and knows how to pull all the strings to harm his enemy . . . and the other man is a young head-strong man who wants to make his own way in the world, fighting for a chance against all odds. We also have two women . . . one raised in wealth and luxury who wants the tough young fellow with nothing but courage and a strong will, and the lady with the checkered past who knows how to fight dirty when she needs to, who also falls in love with the young penniless man.

C'mon now . . . this isn't the first movie that you have seen with two women after the same fellow . . . who do you think will get him in the end? Which man and which woman will wind up together, and which woman will be left in the cold Alaska air without an 'armstrong' heater? (are you too young to know what an 'armstrong heater' is slang for? Ask your grandma, she will tell you with a blush that an armstrong heater is the warm arm of a good man wrapped tightly around her.

Remember, this motion picture was filmed several years before the Hays Office was created to dictate how movies could end. This one can go any which way but loose . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
