This very early Capra film is a must-see for several reasons. Jean Harlow is unusually cast as a straight society high-brow. Although the role could easily be played as a caricature, she brings to it appealing depth and vulnerability. Loretta Young is radiant. And Robert Williams delivers an eccentric performance that seems far ahead of its time. I had never seen nor heard of him before. Capra's populism here consists mostly of: let the classes stay in their places, they don't mix very well. A surprisingly literate and engaging film.
