Storyline

Playboy Jonathan Blair wakes up after a night on the town to find that Texan Valentine Ransome has escorted him home. Val is attracted to Jonathan but, finding that his life is aimless and his family shipping company almost bankrupt, she decides to reform him first and marry him later. Aiding her is Jonathan's unctuous butler, Butch; in her way is his fiancée, ditzy actress Carol. Lots of slapstick. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Blame It on the Night
6 August 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Texas socialite (Barbara Stanwyck) falls for bankrupt playboy (Herbert Marshall) dating a ditzy actress (Glenda Farrell). With help from Marshall's butler (Eric Blore), she sets out to reform him. First step is to buy his business to cut off his income so perhaps he will be forced to work. Then she tries to get him untangled from Farrell. Delightful little romantic comedy with a great cast. Stanwyck may not be a believable Texan but she's still likable and fun. Marshall is also a little hard to swallow as shiftless but his charm overcomes that. Eric Blore and Glenda Farrell offer terrific support. Wait til you see how Stanwyck breaks up a wedding. Kind of gave me the creeps!
