Baby Face


Dir. Alfred E. Green (1933).
The young Barbara Stanwyck runs away from home (a coal town speakeasy where she’s pimped by her degenerate father), arrives in the big city and systematically sleeps her way up the corporate ladder. Bad Teacher forsooth: This pre-Code hottie couldn’t be made today, even as a comedy.
