Storyline

Wayne Carter is a wealthy Manhattan businessman and partying playboy, he not caring about the marital status of the women with who he cavorts. His butler, Rollins, although tries to convince him that he would be happier falling in love and settling down, nonetheless aspires to his boss' lifestyle. Wayne, however, truly is tiring of his womanizing ways. Helene and Lita Andrews are sisters living together in a one room apartment. Helene is the more sensible one, she who is a currently unemployed but trained stenographer, and who supports Lita while Lita tries to get work as a dancer on the stage. Lita, however, would rather that some rich man marry and pamper her. Through indirect means, Wayne meets the sisters. Impressed by Helene and the good head she has on her shoulders, Wayne later tracks her down solely to offer her a well paying job as his executive assistant, he not having any ulterior motives in his offer. Despite being suspect that he is only after her as a woman, she accepts.... Written by Huggo

An early curiosity, but it's pretty good.
24 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just love the LOOK of the movies of the 30's, that is, the movies celebrating the lifestyles of the giddy rich. The clothes, the decor, the cars, the swank living quarters. The plot has already been discussed here, I came to comment about Mae Murray (age 42?? she looks adorable!). I am reminded of the back story of the comic strip that has been around forever - "Blondie" - who was a flapper who married Dagwood way back in the 20's, thereby prompting his wealthy family to cut him off and condemn him to working for a living unto this day. Mae Murray looks exactly like "Blondie" might have looked, in her wild youth, before she became domesticated ! A creaky movie, but worth a look. The 'playboy' is rather silly, it's the women and the look of the film I enjoy.
