Young Jane Benson just about manages to make ends meet running the large family house in Yorkshire. In love with local doctor Freddie Jarvis, she suggests they marry, but almost at once finds she has inherited eighteen million pounds. He makes it clear he wants nothing to do with the money and what it can buy, and Jane sets off alone on a spree pursued by two ardent suitors. Jarvis finds he has gained notoriety for turning down such a catch and his plans for ernest research are soon compromised. Written by

At the private "fashion show", soon after Jane inherits the money, the first shot shows Jane and her entourage from behind, and Freddie is already seated on the far left chair (as seen from behind). Then we see Freddie standing at a display case holding a ladies shoe. When asked to pay attention to the parade of models wearing what Jane has ordered for her trousseau, he walks around the seated ladies from stage right to stage left and takes his seat, the same as in the opening shot.

Over The Moon never became the comedy classic that Alexander Korda wished for his wife Merle Oberon. But it is a pleasant enough film showing the upper classes in the United Kingdom enjoying their privileges.
Dutiful Merle Oberon and Dr. Rex Harrison are attending Merle's grandfather until his demise. Grandpa never spent a dime and his only living heir inherits 18 million pounds. At the age she's at she will not hoard, but instead starts moving with the upper crust and gets a few upper crust admirers chiefly Robert Douglas son of the richest man in the United Kingdom.
Harrison gets tired though and wants to get back to practicing medicine. But Merle's just starting to go through the fortune and all the admirers it's bringing.
Harrison walks out but like Levi Johnson he's acquired some notoriety of his own and he gets an offer from some sanitarium that caters to the disgustingly rich to join their staff though he at first doesn't really know why.
Of course in the end it all works out. Over in America had this been done by a Leo McCarey or a Mitchell Leisen Over The Moon might have been a comedy classic. It had the makings, but it falls short.
