The ending


Did anyone else hope for a more cheerful ending, like -for instance- in Red-Headed Woman (1932)? I mean, Roxie (played magnificently by the great Phyllis Haver) was such a vivacious, sassy, perky character, that I, for one, couldn't help being on her side all the time.

Of course I'm aware that she commited murder, but since most of the movie was a comedy, I really didn't expect -nor wanted- such a dramatic ending. I mean, it's obvious the husband and the maid ended up together and happy forever after, but poor Roxie??? I want to believe that while she was walking down the street some millionaire in his car recognized and picked her up, and then gave her the life of a queen! 
