Glorious Gloria Swanson in Indiscreet (1931)

Written by Kami at Classic Couple.

Indiscreet (1931) is described as a comedy, a drama and a musical. Indeed, it is all those things. A Pre-Code morality tale, Indiscreet stars Gloria Swanson giving one of her most captivating performances of the 1930s.

Available in April from The Film Detective, Indiscreet is a must-watch for those whose knowledge of Swanson is limited to her tour de force performance as former silent film star Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard (1950) or her star turns in silent films of the Teens and Twenties.

The plot of Indiscreet is typical of a Pre-Code film. On New Year’s Eve, Geraldine “Gerry” Trent decides it’s time to let go of her notoriously unfaithful boyfriend, Jim Woodward. She sends him packing before the stroke of midnight despite his marriage proposal.
