The Man from Toronto (1933) is a perfectly cute and entertaining movie. Jessie Matthews (Leslie Fararr) shines in her role as the rich girl who pretends to be a maid. This is the first movie I've seen her in and I was very much impressed by the way she carried herself throughout the film. The love interest is unfortunately plain and not particularly attractive, but the romance is believable. Some scenes are too long and unnecessary, but on the whole a well directed and edited movie. This little known film should get more recognition because it is quite cute and funny at times. Good clean fun from the magical world of the '30s. 6/10
