It was around the time that  was labeled “box office poison” that she did this positively weird comedy about a socialite who finds God. Susan combats the weak habits of her alcoholic husband () by taking refuge in religion, much to the chagrin of her party animal friends who’d rather not be imposed upon by this pushy woman. Crawford is terrific in the role, but the film is not all that memorable or interesting.
