A rich fellow must find a wife or lose his allowance.
This is a film from 1930, and while there are good films from 1930,
this would not be one of them. The acting is odd, the lines are
stilted, there are long pauses during which I kept expecting the
director to shout "cut!" Comedy depends upon.
More than anything else, that is what romantic comedy is, and this
amateurish, dated thing is lurching in its timing. Four years later, It
Happened One Night was filmed, so either someone figured out how to
deliver, direct, and edit snappy dialog in just four years, or they
knew before (my suspicion) and this movie is simply inept.
