Janet Gaynor is a country bumpkin who finds herself in New York with Robert Montgomery and Franchot Tone while her fiancée is missing in "Three Loves Has Nancy," a wonderfully funny comedy. Montgomery, Gaynor, and Tone are all hilarious as parts of this strange menage. Gaynor, as Nancy, stood up on her wedding day by "George," is sent by her family to New York to find him. After a series of events, she winds up being used by writer Montgomery to get a rapacious female and her mother off his case. When Franchot Tone, his publisher, friend, and neighbor, gets a sniff of Gaynor's southern cooking, the two men battle it out for her attention. Montgomery considers her a jinx and wants to be rid of Nancy - or so he thinks - until Tone decides he's in love with her.
There are quite a few laugh out loud scenes in this film. It's highly recommended. The "goof" described by IMDb indicates that perhaps two men were cast on different days as Tone's father, an uncredited role, but only one actor is listed. Anyway, it's great fun.
