Example text

The pretty but shy and naive daughter of an impoverished local farmer, Roberta soon succumbs to Clyde's blandishments and romance blooms. She falls in love with him but not vice versa; Clyde would much rather have Sondra Finchley, the very embodiment of wealth, beauty, and high social status. Clyde's interest in Roberta being purely sexual, he pressures her for intimacy. Although she is deeply infatuated with him, Roberta is reluctant to sleep with Clyde unless and until he proposes marriage. In a reversal of the position he was in with Hortense Briggs three years earlier, Clyde plays the sophisticated schemer and, as Samuel Griffiths' nephew, he enjoys the superior social position.

Paramount then hired the celebrated Austrian director Josef von Sternberg. Paramount also employed the screenwriter Samuel Hoffenstein to formulate a new, politically palatable scenario.
