Watchable, unoriginal
13 April 2017 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

This is basically a more complicated retread of Gable's "It Happened One Night." Once again, a reporter hooks up with an heiress to get a big scoop, and in spite of initial antagonism, their high level of physical attractiveness inevitably leads to love. But in this one there's also professional rivalry and a few spies.

Gable has a lot of charm, but his character is really pretty awful. Screwball stars are often a bit obnoxious, but for me, he seemed particularly conscienceless. He casually commits major crimes and treats his rival (well played by Franchot Tone) worse than I would treat an enemy, yet this is all played as harmless hijinks.

There are some cute scenes, most notably one in a castle, and it's certainly watchable, but I just found this movie both mildly amusing and mildly objectionable.
