Her Private Affair is a 1929 drama film directed by Paul L. Stein and starring Ann Harding. It was produced and distributed by the Pathé Exchange company. It is a sound film using the RCA Photophone sound-on-film sound system.
"Ladies in Love", in its time, was a very good film. Today when you watch it, it might seem old fashioned--due, in part, to its primitive sound quality. But if you can look past this and understand that in comparison to other films of the early 30s, it's actually well made and enjoyable. Had it been made a year or two later, perhaps I would have scored it a point lower.
Harry King (Johnnie Walker) is a struggling songwriter from Vermont. He naively thinks that when he comes to New York City that he can just walk in and have stars listen to his song. Because of this, he pesters the radio star, Miss Lascelle (Alice Day), to listen to it. But she is naturally busy and it's only later, when the General Manager of the radio station she works at lies and says that Harry is a millionaire does she notice him! Soon they fall in love...but the false pretenses are a big strike against Harry. The other is that she already has a rich boyfriend! Need another problem? A two-faced girl from back home in Vermont is determined to get him back...even if it means tricking everyone to do so!
This is a cute little romance....nothing grand or spectacular. But it is enjoyable and despite the crappy sound, it is enjoyable.
