It Takes a Thief
31 May 2008 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Wealthy Harrison Ford (as Donald Ransome) arrives late for a wedding; there, he makes off with not only a string of pearls, but also lovely Alberta Vaughn (as Betty)'s attention. When the pearls are discovered missing, Mr. Ford uses Ms. Vaughn as an unwitting accomplice; he stashes the necklace in her belongings, to retrieve at a later date. But, Vaughn is engaged to Tyrell Davis (as Ronnie Courtney), who becomes jealous of Ford. When Ford goes to retrieve the stolen pearls from Vaughn, comic complications ensue.

Most notable as silent star Harrison Ford's last film appearance. In his only speaking role, Ford's voice is serviceable; but, he seems uncomfortable with the talking picture. Vaughn and Davis are more natural. No matter, director Frank Strayer's "Love in High Gear" never really takes off, in any case.

*** Love in High Gear (1932) Frank Strayer ~ Harrison Ford, Alberta Vaughn, Tyrell Davis
