a forgotten little gem!!!
25 August 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Genevieve Tobin was an under-rated actress who was at her best in light, frothy comedies, especially "One Hour With You". She was also excellent as the wife of Edward G. Robinson in the quirky "Dark Hazard"

  • a film made just before the code was enforced, so with a typical

pre-code ending!!! She was also Della Street in the better than average entry "The Case of the Lucky Legs" (1935).

The plot is reminiscent of "The Keyhole" (1933), but with a comic twist. Shirley (Genevieve Tobin) is the bored wife of novelist Andrew Poole (Roland Yound). The film has some quite witty scenes - in one you see their legs walking to get married, then walking down the aisle, then his legs as he struggles with a shopping bag - it says exactly how their marriage is working - or not working!! In another scene Andrew jealously talks about the "handsome" men in her office - then the viewer sees them in reality and they are doddering, elderly men. Andrew is a "house husband" - he cooks, he cleans and tries to find good laundries while Shirley goes to the office. They decide to take separate vacations as they feel they are getting into a rut.

He is going fishing, she on a pleasure cruise to the Baltic - not quite the vacation for the wife of an extremely jealous husband. Weirdly enough, he then wrangles a job on the boat as a barber!!! - so he can keep an eye on her. He definitely has his work "cut out" for him as Shirley proves very popular. He is popular too - with Mrs. Signus (Una O'Connor) a flirtatious passenger who won't take no for an answer. Secretly, he is scuttling all Shirley's romances with a sly comment here and there - until she comes across Richard Faversham (Ralph Forbes, with his glorious voice). She is tempted to cheat and pours out her heart to Mrs. Signus (unfortunately Andrew is hiding in the closet and hears everything). The ship is holding a fancy dress ball and Richard is planning a seduction.

The ending is great fun - Richard doesn't get to keep his rendezvous but someone else does!! Shirley finds her cigarette case missing from her cabin and as she walks the deck, it seems that all the men are leering at her and all have the same cigarette case!!!

Minna Gombell is also in the film as a friend of the Pooles. The story was written by Guy Bolton who wrote some of the most sparkling plays of the 20s, including "Oh Kay", "Oh Boy", "Rio Rita" and "Tip Toes". I can really recommend this forgotten little gem.
