A Bill of Divorcement ★★★

The summary and writing of "A Bill of Divorcement" is quite dated, but that isn't particularly an issue. It seems as though RKO wanted to put out a film that touched on a sensitive topic, but at the same time, they just wanted to toss something out into the theaters for a quick buck--and the desire for the latter quickly took precedence over desire for the former. What makes this a "bad" thing is the obviousness of the fact. What could have been a groundbreaking 1930s film on mental health was released as a rushed and under-cooked ham.

The acting was great, though.
