Trivia

The preview time of 75 minutes was reported by the Motion Picture Herald in its issue of 13 June 1931, so that it is possible that footage was added before the general release. In any case, RKO lost $215,000 on the film. See more »

Claire Sailing
5 October 2004 | by marcslopeSee all my reviews

Ina Claire had big eyes, an upturned nose, a precision of inflection to rival Judy Holliday's, and a way of dominating a room the moment she entered it. Not conventionally pretty, and too old for this sort of of dewy-young-thing part (she was about 40), she's nevertheless a joy to watch. The movie, from a mildly successful Donald Ogden Stewart play, is one of those drawing-room comedies that pretends the Depression never happened and spends most of its time arranging and rearranging couples. It's fluff, and with, shall we say, a last-minute happy ending one doesn't believe. But Claire is so watchable, with more intelligence than a woman could profitably employ in those days, and Myrna Loy is a delectable rival. There's also Robert Williams, a fine light comedian (check out Capra's "Platinum Blonde") who died tragically young. Good time capsule, and one of the few 1931 movies you can show your contemporary friends without blushing.
