Alice White Shines In This Great Drama
27 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Luxury Liner is a terrific, entertaining drama from 1933 with a very talented cast. Alice White gives a delightful performance and the movie is worth watching just to see her.

As the film begins we see a large ship ready to depart from Europe to America and we meet some of the passengers. There is Dr. Thomas Bernard (George Brent) who is trying to win back his ex-wife (Vivienne Osborne), Miss Morgan (Zita Johann) is the ships nurse who never dates, Milli Stern (Alice White) a third class passenger who desperately wants to be in first class, Edward Thorndyke (C. Aubrey Smith) a former millionaire who's just been released from jail, and Alex Stevenson (Frank Morgan) who wants to romance an opera singer.

While Dr Bernard fights to get his wife back, Milli comes up with a scheme to make money in stock market. Of course there is a lot of drama and fighting and a little romance.
