Storyline

Richard Gaylord, Jr. is a modern Lothario who has so many sweethearts that his father does not know what to do with him. Tired of paying to get his son out of one romantic entanglement after another, the elder Gaylord sends his son to the Basque region of France, believing that the women there will accept attentions only from their own people. Almost immediately, a local girl, Yvonne Hurja becomes infatuated with Richard, whom she sees as being able to help her break free from the unwanted attention of local guardsman Julio. A rivalry grows between Richard and Julio. Written by GusF

****** Fair Comedy
13 August 2018 | by GManfredSee all my reviews

Richard Dix plays a wastrel bon-vivant who is heir to his father's business if he can reform his ways and prove himself worthy. He must keep away from the ladies, for which he has a proclivity. He is sent to The Basque region of the Pyrenees to close a deal for some valuable minerals. Naturally, he encounters a lovely senorita (Frances Howard) who is betrothed to a volatile local tough (William Powell). Funny situations occur, which include Harpo Marx (!), Dix and Powell.

It could have been a better film with a different lead than Dix, who does not seem cut out for comedy. He was, first and foremost, an action hero, and the bulk of the storyline hinges on William Powell, who carries most of the film. It has value mainly as a Hollywood antique to see some stars before they became famous, as the theme has been done many times and often better than "Too Many Kisses".

6/10 - The website no longer prints my star ratings.
