One Year Before The Creation of the World
7 March 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Robert Montgomery is great in this comedy of manners. It should have been a screwball comedy, and if it had been released eighteen months later, it would have been, but there was no such genre at that time; even a year later, IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT was considered a screwball comedy instead of a romantic one.

But at this time, Screwball was BOUDU SAVED FROM DROWNING, and the Production Code hadn't closed down the sex comedy, which is what made the American screwball comedy. So this movie about how ace press agent Robert Montgomery saves Sally Eilers from committing suicide by jumping off the Staten Island Ferry, makes her the toast of the town and then orchestrates her defense after she shoots someone just misses.

Montgomery is perfect, exuding an air of genial, self-aware corruption, but everyone else seems to be taking matters far too seriously, even the old ladies he hires to pose as Eiler's sniveling aunts in the courtroom.

MGM's Harry Beaumont, their resident expert on making bricks without straw and stars without talent somehow fails... Eilers lacks the subtlety and range for her role, which weights down this work. Madge Evans is present and steady, but the entire movie lacks the sense of madness that infuses screwball. Ah well. Good try.
