Constance Bennett and Pert Kelton (the original "Alice" in Jackie Gleason's The Honeymooners) are a pair of rollickingly wanton prostitutes who occasionally get hapless male pursuers drunk before robbing them, at least until the girls are caught and thrown back into jail. The film is laced with witty dialogue as well as scenes that would never be allowed after the adoption of the Production Code in July 1934. The film also features Joel McCrea as the skipper of a small cotton boat who fishes Bennett's character out of the river after she's dived off a ship to escape capture. The movie was directed by Gregory LaCava.
