  1. Colbert also played roles as a dance hall girl in ‘His Woman’ (1931) and a torch singer in ‘Torch Singer’ (1933). In both roles her characters are depicted as having a reputation for lewdness–and the films seem to suggest that being a dance hall girl or a torch singer was something akin to being a prostitute. In fact, in His Woman a sailor hints at having had a sexual encounter with her and it’s clear by the conversation between the sailor and Sally Clark (Colbert) they’ve met before. The details of their meeting aren’t clear, but what is clear is the meeting wasn’t pleasant for Sally, and whatever had happened it involved sex. There’s a scene in the film where the sailor attempts to rape her, but Captain Whelan (Gary Cooper) intervenes and fends off her attacker. Also, another sailor on the ship recognizes Sally, too… so the suggestion is, she was a loose woman…
