Storyline

Steven Gaye, a successful New York playwright has passed forty and thinks he has bid farewell to the world of romance. But he falls in love with his secretary, Linda Brown, and suddenly finds himself more madly in love than ever before in his life. Linda reciprocates his feelings but he feels there is a too wide gap in their ages, and he pushes her in the direction of the leading man, Dick Reynolds, in his current Broadway play. Linda becomes engaged to the younger man and finds there is a problem...while Dick is young and romantic, he is also dumb. And the longer Linda is with him, the more she yearns for Steven's comfortable understanding and mature charm. (Despite the site-plot line that says so, she does not marry the son of her boss.)

First movie version of Samuel Raphaelson play
19 August 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

1935's "Accent on Youth" was the first film adaptation of Samuel Raphaelson's 1934 Broadway play, the story of a wealthy 50 year old playwright, Steven Gaye (Herbert Marshall), whose latest offering, intended as a tragedy following 19 straight comedies, depicts a romance between a young woman and an older man. Yet for the previous three years, he has never noticed that his loyal young secretary, Linda Brown (Sylvia Sidney), has been in love with him. Life imitates art when Linda decides to marry her co-star in the play (Phillip Reed), much like her character does, but soon regrets the whirlwind decision. Rarely does the film leave Herbert Marshall's home, a static presentation that the cast tries hard to overcome. Among the smaller roles are Dick Foran and Lon Chaney, as Butch and Chuck, buddies of the young groom, who really only figure in the denouement. Foran was still billed as 'Nick Foran,' while this was one of the first films for Creighton Chaney's new moniker, 'Lon Chaney Jr.'
