Ann Carver's Profession

Fay Wray according to this summary (NYT review here; spoilers) did eleven films released 1933. I quite enjoyed her in this one about a woman whose success as a lawyer (first big case: a breach of contract suit turning on the girl being "colored") hurts her marriage, helped by good support and great directing/editing (panning in through a diner kitchen's window to see them kiss a highlight). 1930s gender dynamics made ending a downer. Nice find.
