passable screwball comedy with strong cast
3 June 2001 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

A decent enough screwball comedy, Rage owes more than a little to The Awful Truth. Danielle Darieux wants a modeling job and accidentally winds up stripping for businessman Douglas Fairbanks Jr (thinking he's a photographer; he's not). She then gets involved in a complex ploy to marry rich Canadian Louis Hayward, in the process helping head waiter Mischa Auer get his own restaurant. Turns out that Hayward and Fairbanks are friends and Fairbanks thinks she's a cheap trollop and so tries to stop it all from happening with decent enough comic results. A few decent French jokes but terrible last minute romance between Darrieux and Fairbanks leaves a bad taste in the mouth of the discerning viewer. Helen Broderick's role as Darrieux's protector comes off as endearing at first but eventually feels pathetic, as she remains uncoupled at the end of this comic work, never a particularly fortunate place to be.
