Indiscreet

Indiscreet

Movie: Indiscreet
Director: Leo McCarey
Produced by: United Artists
Released By: United Artists
MPAA Rating:

Divesting herself of her own production company, silent-screen queen Gloria Swanson entered into a two-picture deal with producer Joseph M. Schenck, which paid her a straight salary for both productions. The first film completed under this arrangement was the trivial romantic comedy- musical Indiscreet, scripted and scored by songwriters Buddy G. DeSylva, Ray Henderson, and Lew Brown and directed by the matchless Leo McCarey. Swanson plays Geraldine “Gerry” Trent, a worldly socialite who endeavors to protect her sister Joan from the lecherous machinations of Jim Woodward. But when Joan discovers that Jerry and Woodward were once lovers themselves, she mistakenly believes that Jerry’s attempts to break up her romance is motivated by jealousy. In fact, Jerry is completely committed to Joan’s brother Tony Blake. One of the more successful of Gloria Swanson’s talkies, Indiscreet posted a much-needed profit for financially strapped United Artists.
