Now, Alice is trying to coax Fred into buying her a new sable coat---all of her friends are sporting them---while Fred is busily trying to borrow enough money to keep his business afloat.

The film begins with Alice getting married. However, this 'romantic'
lady announces to her friends that this isn't going to slow her
down--she STILL is a party-girl! And, after the newness of marriage
fads, Alice is out chasing other men and living a life well beyond her
poor husband's ability to pay for--despite having a very lucrative job
during the Depression.
This is one of the best examples of a Pre-Code film I have seen. That's
because before the Production Code was strengthened in mid-1934,
Hollywood films were chock full of VERY adult content. For example,
despite what you might think, nudity, graphic violence, cursing,
adultery and the like were not that uncommon pre-1934. In
"Extravagance", the notion of adultery is glorified--with all the
female leads in the film running around on their men and having a jolly
nice time! While some films with similar topics like "Red-Headed Woman"
are enjoyable to watch, however, this film just irritated me. That's
because most Pre-Code films managed to be entertaining--often because
the leads, though immoral, were humorous or engaging. Here, however,
the married women just seemed like bad AND stupid people. Plus, it's
hard to like women who are rich and spoiled--especially when the
Depression was at its worst. With other Pre-Code film, often the women
slept around to get ahead in life--these women already had it all and
wanted more. I don't know, but this sure made it hard for me to keep
Reasonably well-acted, this film never managed to strike a balance
between irony and humor and just featured detestable women. As a
result, it just wasn't that entertaining to me.
