Kay Francis & George Brent Together Again
19 January 2004 | by (Ottawa) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting little Kay Francis programmer, co-starring her frequent leading man George Brent. It's a small and delicate Warners melodrama. It aroused my interest because of Francis.

I liked "Goose and the Gander" but it is not one of Francis' best roles. The plot is a bit baffling and sometimes hard to follow but it is fun and entertaining picture thanks to the charm of Francis & Brent.

This is one of three films Francis made with Brent in 1935. The others are "Living on Velvet" and "Stranded".
