Thelma Jordon (Barbara Stanwyck) falls for a jewel thief and helps him steal her aunts jewelry. She ends up shooting her formerly-rich aunt, but makes it look like an outside job. The D.A. falls in love with her and gets her off. From there things go badly. The way I remember Barbara Stanwyck was when she was kinda old, like from the Big Valley. I was watching a movie on Netflix where she played another bad girl in a noir. That was Double indemnity with Fred MacMurray and Edward G. Robinson. That movie was a little better than this one, but this one is free. So I shake the impression of Barbara Stanwyck as a grandma type and see her in earlier roles where she was a bad girl who really could fill out a sweater.
