Love Minus Zero
5 August 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Cute theater usherette Clara Bow (as Helen "Bunny" O'Day) agrees to apartment sit for a friend, and unexpectedly finds the premises serve as a center for illegal gambling. There, she meets suave, but crooked, Norman Foster (as Douglas "Doug" Thayer). Mr. Foster is hot-and-bothered, and Bow is head-over-heels. "I thought you had 'It'," he tells her. Although Bow had long admired Foster's looks, she is put off by his forwardness. But, he pursues her to the alter. Can their marriage survive his underworld ties?

Paramount photography by Victor Milner gets "No Limit" off to a terrific start. The locations are great. Bow seems more self-assured than in previous "talkies"; her voice was never as big a problem as were her nerves. It's difficult to believe Foster would fail to recognize Bow, even in the dark; but, he is both a convincing and endearing heel. Stu Erwin (as Ole Olson) plays the unfortunate "dumb Swede". The film provides an opportunity to see the first Mrs. Bing Crosby, pretty Dixie Lee Crosby (as Dotty "Dodo" Potter). And, don't forget, Gary Cooper appears in "Fighting Caravans".

***** No Limit (1/16/31) Frank Tuttle ~ Clara Bow, Norman Foster, Dixie Lee Crosby
