Cornball drama is strictly '30s standard tear-jerker romance...
21 May 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

ROBERT MONTGOMERY is a wastrel who goes from job to job, finally landing in South Africa where he falls in love with an Admiral's daughter (MADGE EVANS). They meet casually in the shop where he works and for him it's love at first sight. In no time at all they become starry-eyed lovers forced to separate when her wealthy family decides he's the wrong material for a suitor, a struggling playwright who's never had a success.

But they do get together again when she ditches her fiancé (REGINALD OWEN) and returns to Montgomery, offering to marry him. For awhile, it's rough going with no money for food or rent and Evans' father forces Montgomery to give her up and let his daughter return home.

Of course, it all leads toward a happy ending when Montgomery's play based on his real life affair with a wealthy woman becomes a tremendous hit. The dialog is not always as sophisticated as one would like. Evans' last line is: "Let's stay home and have a baby." MADGE EVANS was one of the most attractive blondes of the '30s and gives a sincere performance. Montgomery is first rate as her troubled husband.

Summing up: The material has been done before, over and over again, and more successfully than here where it gets the cornball treatment.
