Trivia

The opening scene is missing in the TCM print, according to synopses reported in contemporary reviews. In that scene, the Douglas Fairbanks Jr. character is a bookworm who goes to Central America when advised to do so by a fortune-teller. The missing scene may account for the TCM print being shorter than the reported running time. See more »

Poor Loretta
29 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

I Like Your Nerve (1931)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Far fetched, unromantic and unfunny romantic comedy has Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. in a Latin country where he falls in love with Loretta Young even though she's to be married to another man. Several words like boring, insane and stupid come to mind when I think about this film, which is a major disappointment considering the talent involved. Boris Karloff has a small role as a butler.

Loretta Young is my favorite actress but this is certainly one of her lesser films.
