In Thebes in ancient Greece, King Oedipus kills his father and marries his mother Jocasta, having two sons - Eteocles and Polyneices - and two daughters - Ismene and Antigone. King Oedipus dies a beggar in the exile after gouging out his own eye, and Eteocle agrees to reign in Thebes in alternating years with Polynices. However, he refuses to resign after the first year and Polynieces raises an army and attacks Thebes, and they kill each other. The ruler of Thebes Creon decrees that Eleocles should have an honorable burial while the body of the traitor Polyneices should be left on the battlefield to be eaten by the jackals and vultures. However, Antigone, who was betrothed to Creon's surviving son Haemon, defies Creon's orders and buries her brother. When Creon is reported of the attitude of Antigone, he sentences her to be placed in a tomb alive. Antigone hangs herself in the tomb and Haemon tries to kill his father first and then he kills himself with his sword...
Antigone defies her uncle's decree that her traitorous brother should go unburied and therefore find no rest in the afterlife; however, her actions have tragic consequences. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Adam C (nl) wrote: This is by far one of the most scandalous films of its era. It's shocking to see a film that is almost eighty years old that is as racy and provocative as this film. The true core of the film depends on the wonderfully cold and calculating performance of the always great Barbara Stanwyck. She is something to behold here as a ruthless femme fatal who literally sleeps her way to the top. The film in a way has a lot in common with scandalous melodramas like the film Wild Things, but it also has a real wit to it. The film is trashy fun to a point but it is also rather funny, and self-aware. If you think old movies are dull, then check out this film to prove how wrong you are. It has aged wonderfully and seems are fresh as it must have years ago.
