The cheat: A spoiled socialite is a gambling addict. She borrows money from an exotic art collector in order to replace what she has stolen from a charity. The collateral for the loan may be a shock, a there is a large penalty for default. A catalog of selfishness, desire and revenge, not to mention a touch of kinky.
In 1934, Hollywood was turned upside down by the enforcement of a strict "Production Code" that would change the way movies were made for the next 34 years. But during the "pre-Code" period (1929-1934), censorship barely existed and filmmakers had free reign to make the movies they wanted and the public demanded. No subject was taboo including adultery, murder or sex.
