As bad as they come

Author: John Seal from Oakland CA
29 July 2006

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

There is virtually nothing to recommend about this stale, unfunny, unromantic romantic comedy from RKO. The problem starts with star Lili Damita, who clearly is being groomed here as a junior grade Marlene Dietrich. Unfortunately, she is a strictly one dimensional simulacrum, and her performance as a misbehaving French girl trying to stay out of trouble in small town Springfield is dreadful. Equally inept is the romantic partner she's given, Charles Morton, who turns his quiet, unassuming character into the cinematic equivalent of a corpse. Boring doesn't begin to describe him. As always, it's good fun to see Nat Pendleton--here cast as a motorcycle cop--but his role is too small to outweigh the slow moving horror show that is Goldie Gets Along. Proof that not everything from the '30s is a classic--or even adequate.
