Chained 1934
Crawford plays Diane Lovering, the young mistress of the much older Manhattan shipping tycoon, Richard Field (Otto Kruger), whose wife Louise (Marjorie Gateson) refuses to give him a divorce because she digs her society lifestyle and is not perturbed by his affair. The gentle and caring Richard sends Diane on a luxury ocean cruise to Bueno Aires to ease her pain. On the cruise Diane meets Mike Bradley (Clark Gable), a wealthy and lively Buenos Aires horse and cattle rancher who is closer to her age, and the two fall in love despite Diane trying to be loyal to her generous man back home. The plan is for Diane, out of fairness, to return to Manhattan and tell Richard she intends to marry Mike. But, in New York, Richard tells Diane that his wife granted him a divorce. When Diane learns that the loving Richard is so much in love with her that he agreed to the divorce terms of not seeing his boys again--she decides to marry him and not mention anything about Mike. A year later Diane meets Mike by accident in New York...
