FILM: Forbidden (1932, 85 min)

On an ocean voyage, Lulu (Stanwyck), a thrill-seeking, small town librarian, enters into a carefree affair with Bob Grover (Adolph Menjou), a lawyer with major political ambitions. Even though she learns that Grover has an invalid wife and will never leave her, she continues to carry on their affair in private. When a newspaper editor threatens to expose the couple publicly, tragedy ensues. Capra’s attempt to create a popular “women’s picture” is made credible by the strong performances of Stanwyck, Menjou and Ralph Bellamy.
