Storyline

Reggie, the impish Marquis of Buckminster, has many friends and is happy with his present bachelor lifestyle. But his grandmother demands that he now get married to one of a few suitable women that she names, and have some children. Two of the women are twin sisters who are friends of his from another aristocratic family, so he visits them, and learns that they already have fiancés but commoners, against their family's wishes. If he can help them to marry the men they want, it will also shorten the list of candidates and maybe help him remain single so Reggie does everything he can to help them. Written by Anonymous

not charmed
11 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was not charmed by this. I was bored by this.

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.

Timing.

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.
