Nice Operetta
9 May 2013 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Kissing Time (1933)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

An American woman (Jane Froman) visits a small South American town where she quickly falls for a charming lieutenant (Georges Metaxa) but their romance is threatened by an evil dictator who wants the girl for himself and will kill the other if he has to. This operetta clocks in at 22-minutes and is fairly entertaining. I guess it should go without saying but a longer running time probably would have helped things because there's so much packed into the running time that you can't help but somewhat feel like nothing get expanded to a point that's needed to really make the love story work. I thought both Froman and Metaxa handled the songs extremely well and it's easy to see why they were both quite successful in their time. Froman has pretty much been forgotten except for those who remember Susan Hayward playing her in WITH A SONG IN MY HEART. This two-reeler features some fairly funny stuff involving the dictator but there's no question the real highlight here are the songs that are performed. None of them are overly memorable but each is good enough to help carry the film.
