Don't ask, Why didn't Clara Bow survive the transition from silent to sound? Ask, How could any actress survive such inappropriate material? "Love Among the Millionaires" is "A Musical Romance". Apparently, Paramount was seeking to try Ms. Bow as a musical comedy star; indeed, musicals were a very popular early sound genre. Bow plays a singing waitress who unwittingly falls in love with millionaire in disguise Stanley Smith (as Jerry Hamilton). She serves "salt, pepper, baloney, and hash." Mr. Smith loves Bow back, but others get in the way
Smith and young Mitzi Green (as Penelope) show some musical stage ability. The latter performer is a huge misdirected annoyance in this film, however; one might say, "When she was good, she was very, very good; but, when she was bad, she was horrid." The movie is more often horrid. Barbara Bennett ends her brief film career with a brief appearance; she looks, and sounds, like sister Joan. Bow has a "drunk" song. Unfunny lines include, "Now, you can order watermelon!" and "This is our dance".
This is one obnoxious movie.
** Love Among the Millionaires (7/19/30) Frank Tuttle ~ Clara Bow, Stanley Smith, Mitzi Green
