Ivor Novello, Madeleine Carroll & Kay Hammond Shine
23 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Charming romantic comedy with Ivor Novello as a train conductor who's quite the lady's man with a girlfriend in several cities where the train stops. One rich passenger, Madeleine Carroll, seems able to resists his charms. That is until she runs afoul of French law and must marry a Frenchman or be deported to England.

They marry as a "formality only" so she can stay in Paris where she has a house. But an old girlfriend (Kay Hammond) won't give up so easily and complications ensue when she's found in his bed in the guest room. Who will win Novello? Familiar plot, but the stars are very good and seem to be having a good time. Co-stars include Laddie Cliff and Stanley Holloway as fellow train employees, Claud Allister as a silly baron, Ivor Barnard as the lawyer, and Vera Bryer as the maid.
