"Expensive Women" is a 1931 Pre-Code talking film drama directed by silent-film veteran Hobart Henley and stars Dolores Costello. It was Costello's final film as a leading lady and star for Warners, with which she had been since 1925. She retired to be the wife of John Barrymore and raise their family. Costello would return to films five years later after a long hiatus and the end of her marriage to Barrymore, but never regained the luster she enjoyed as a WB star. Many contemporary critics commented that this one had been an unfortunate choice for her return to the screen after a two-year absence.
