Date: 1936
Type: Drama / Romance
Rating: 3 Stars 3/5
Colour: Black and White
Director: Walter Lang
Producer: Edmund Grainger

Two men (Preston Foster and Cesar Romero) compete for the love of a socialite (Carole Lombard). One (Preston Foster) goes so far as to buy the company that the other one (Cesar Romero) works for so he can get his rival out of the way by sending him on a job to Japan. He works to try and get her to love him and when she eventually agrees to marry him he brings the other man back to make sure she really does want him. The plot is nothing special and Preston Foster is not convincing as the love interest. The highlight of the film is the performance from Carole Lombard, which whilst not her best, the mix of her charm, comedy and elegance makes up for the poor plot.
