I recently saw Strangers in Love. I believe Fredric March was particularly good at playing double-role: Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde docet.
He plays Buddy and he plays Arthur two twin brothers so physically alike and so different in behaving, interests and attitudes.
Arthur is posh, snob and envious about his brother Robert who is so easy thinking, good at sports, having no money, living away from his brother . He's everything but snob. One day Buddy meets his brother again in order to ask for some money and Arthur says it all about his feelings for Buddy.
During this fight, Arthur dies because of a heart attack and Buddy takes his place, pretending to be Arthur him self.
From now on, the movie turns out to be quite nice, elegant, and also ironic. Fredric March is irresistible, witty, funny and he's the one who makes the difference in terms of talent, presence, ability and humor. Fredric March makes the movie.
He was not a matinée idol: he was an actor.
A nice product of US cinematography in the 30's.
