Yes. It’s another bachelor apartment, and the third one for me to capture stills from. I originally saw this film on Turner Classic Movies, but when I searched for a DVD to rent or buy, all I was able to find was an import from Spain that required some tricks to play on my DVD drive. After going through all this trouble, I was disappointed in the quality of this copy. I don’t remember TCM’s version being this poor, but it’s okay enough for us to make out the stunning interiors.

And the plot? It’s the same old story. There’s the womanizing playboy with his many liaisons, who meets an honest working girl and falls in love. The film stars Lowell Sherman, Irene Dunne, and a fabulous apartment. If you want to know more about the film go here, here, and here.

If it weren’t for all the crazy 45 degree angles, I would have attempted to draw up the floor plan to share with you, but I just couldn’t work out the outside entry, inside foyer, his bedroom and dressing room with all their angles. The rest of the apartment is easy to understand and sketch out.
