Henry Fonda and Joan Bennett star in "I Met My Love Again," a 1938 film featuring Dame May Witty, Alan Marshal, Louise Platt, and codirected by Josh Logan, Fonda's buddy from Princeton.
Julie and Ives (Bennett and Fonda) become engaged while in college, but Ives doesn't want to get married until he amounts to something. One day, Julie and a friend go to buy him a birthday gift; there's a tremendous rainstorm, and Julie, her car turned over, stops at the home of a writer (Marshal). He's impetuous and funny, and planning to move to Paris. They marry and do just that.
Ives becomes a local professor; Julie and her husband have a daughter, Michael, but basically she's unhappy. Her husband doesn't do much writing but a lot of partying, and he's constantly getting into fights. One night, he and another man have a pistol duel, and he's killed.
Julie eventually returns to her home town with her daughter and connects with Ives again, but a lot of people are against them, his mother for one. And a student of Ives (Louise Platt) has fallen in love with him and wants to marry him.
I saw a really bad print of this. It's a sweet film and the leads are very attractive; if I'd been Fonda's student, I'd have fallen for him too. He was pretty adorable. They made a good couple.
"I Met My Love Again" is just not much of a film. It's pleasant but not memorable. If you see it, see it for the leads and the always delightful Dame May Witty.
