Description by OLDIES.com:

When gorgeous gold digger Mary (Miriam Hopkins) lands in San Francisco -- only to discover that her wealthy fiancé has been murdered -- she loses no time hooking up with the richest crook in town (Edward G. Robinson). But when she unexpectedly falls for a handsome, idealistic miner, she soon learns just how much money can't buy -- and just how much she'll risk for a love that worth its weight in gold.
