nice light B movie

Wendy Barrie and Kent Taylor star in "Repent at Leisure" from 1941.

Barrie plays Emily Baldwin, the daughter of a department store magnet who is about to marry a prince and runs out on him. She hops on a bus and meets a man, Richard Hughes (Kent Taylor) who gives her a dime for the bus. Naturally he's curious as to what she's doing in a wedding gown. She tells him she was a model at a store and quit abruptly.

She is interested in meeting a different kind of man from what she has in the past, and he's it; they also have similar goals. She has nowhere to go so he offers her a separate part of his apartment.

It turns out he works at her father's department store - she doesn't mention it's owned by her family - and the next day, all the single men are fired. They have to cut employees and they don't want children to suffer. Try pulling something like that today.

Richard says he's married and has been for the past year. His boss then invites Richard and his wife over to play bridge.

Emily offers to be his wife for the evening. They not only wind up getting married for real, but they go to a foundling home and adopt a beautiful baby boy. All goes well for a while.

This is a good film with a nice performance by Wendy Barrie and the rest of the cast. Charles Lane, who died at 102 in 2007, is Richard's curmudgeon boss and gives his usual nasty performance; and George Barbier is Emily's kind and helpful father.

Enjoyable.
