Her Cardboard Lover

Date: 1942
Type: Comedy / Romance
Rating: 2 Stars 2/5
Colour: Black and White
Director: George Cukor
A woman (Norma Shearer) employs an aspiring songwriter (Robert Taylor) to pretend to be her boyfriend when her ex (George Sanders) turns up wanting to rekindle their relationship. The plot is silly, but Norma Shearer is still charming and elegant in what was her last film. Robert Taylor has a few good scenes but George Sanders is bland in a weak role. This is not a great film, but worth watching if you are a fan of Norma Shearer.
