No They Are Not...
22 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Light weight comedy by Warner Brothes (WB) featuring second tier Stars ROSS Alexander and ANITA LOUISE. Those two (2) form the romantic lead couple. They are supported by 'Character Actors' whose shtick in these films is standard for the time. The sole interesting note is the film featured Husband and Wife, GENE & KATHLEEN LOCKHART, yes JUNE's Parents.

Independent Spirit Bill McAllister (ROSS) loves Hazel Robinson (LOUISE) vying for her affection with Dr. Randolf Jenkins (DICK PURCELL). Both his Uncle and her Parents object. Why, because he has no hook to hang his hat on and no prospects of getting one. That does not stop Hazel though and the triumph of their inevitable marriage is a fantasy that only could occur in the 'Golden Age' of Hollywood. Want the details, watch the film. It is only 67" long.

ROSS Alexander a couple years earlier was being brought up through the WB star system. By 1936 and the BRIDES ARE LIKE THAT he had been regulated to the second tier. ROSS's style was reminiscent of WILLIAM HAINES, late of MGM. The irresponsible 'Gay Blade' who by 'pluck & luck' overcomes all obstacles and triumphs by the end of the last reel. MR. HAINES was forced out of the business because of his homosexuality, but became a successful interior decorator. MR. ROSS could not handle the failing of his career and personal life. On January 02, 1937 decided the rest of the year and his life were not worth viewing. Lead poisoning too his temple solved his conflict.
