Three Loves Has Nancy is a wonderful comedy from 1938 about a woman from a small town who goes to New York to find her missing fiancée. In the process, she meets a city author and his drunken friend who proceed to fall in love with her as well. What ensues is a madcap dash to win her affections in the process of her scatterbrained antics.
Janet Gaynor plays Nancy, the simple and "neighborly" star. Gaynor is wonderful in the role with a consistent accent and constant seriousness that brings plenty of laughs.
Robert Montgomery plays Mal Niles, the writer and perhaps the most grounded and standard of the lead characters.
Franchot Tone is absolutely hysterical as Bob Hanson, a drunk turned sober lovestruck fool. Although he is quite lovable in this film, he varies from his traditional portrayal, bringing lots of attention to his character.
This film, broadcast by Turner Classic Movies, is highly watchable and enjoyable both due to the content and the beautiful picture quality.
