Nice Women is a 1931 American pre-Code romance film written and directed by Edwin H. Knopf. The film stars Sidney Fox, Frances Dee, Alan Mowbray, Lucile Gleason, Russell Gleason and James Durkin.[2][3][1] It was released by Universal Pictures on November 28, 1931.

The film is based on the Broadway play Nice Women by William A. Grew, which premiered at the Longacre Theatre on June 10, 1929 and closed in August 1929 after 64 performances.[4]

Plot

A young woman, Jerry Girard (Frances Dee) is pushed by her mother (Lucille Gleason) and family into accepting the marriage proposal of a millionaire, Mark Chandler (Alan Mowbray), who is the employer of her father (James Durkin). To do so, she has to drop the boy she really loves and promised to marry, Billy Wells (Russell Gleason), but her family is seeking to recover from their financial woes and find security. When the millionaire finds out the real situation, he releases her from her vow and gives the young couple a $5000 wedding gift. He then leaves for Europe with an old flame, Dorothy Drew (Carmel Myers).

Reception

The review in The New York Times called the film a "puerile story of a frustrated romance" and a "sorry affair" caused by "too many studio cooks", and points out "the plain fact of its mediocrity..." The reviewer also reports that the audience seemed indifferent to the film.[5]
