Corruption (1933)

This was a fun little movie starring Preston Foster and one of my favorites Evalyn Knapp. As for Natalie she had like always a very small part as again the other woman. The story is about a political reformer(Preston Foster) who becomes mayor and tries to run all the crooked politicians out of the city, but of course the party boss get him removed from office on a trumped up morals charge. Of course everything ends up well in the end and he becomes states attorney. Natalie plays the daughter of one of the party heads, and also fiancĂ© of Preston Foster, but when they find out he’s not what the party wanted, she’s out of the picture, but comes back when he becomes states attorney. Like a lot of these movies, the secretary is in love with the mayor but he doesn’t know it, so of course in the end he realizes he does really love his secretary, he officially breaks off with Natalie. Natalie did fine with what she had, but she did very little but look beautiful, what a waste of talent.
