A bit short but enjoyable.
27 December 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Goodby Love" is a cute little B-movie from Radio Pictures. It begins with a businessman, Chester Hamilton, having problems paying his alimony--and his ex-wife has him thrown into a VERY surreal jail. I call it surreal because the place is full of men owning spousal support and they have a grand old time! Soon, Hamilton's butler, Oswald (Charlie Ruggles) is tossed into the place as well since he's having trouble paying off his own ex-wife. Hamilton gives Oswald the money he needs but Oswald is tricky---and gives his ex only enough to get her off his back. With the rest, he goes on holiday--posing as a rich guy to hook a rich wife. Unfortunately, the woman he falls for is also posing as a rich lady. At first, she is ready to marry Oswald but when Hamilton is released from prison, she chases him instead. When Oswald and Hamilton find out about this, the movie gets rather strange....see it to see what I mean.

This film is an amiable little comedy. As usual, Ruggles is enjoyable in this nice, slight role. My only complaint about the movie is that since it is a B-movie, it clocks in at only a tad over an hour. Having it be a bit longer would have made for a better film and allowed the plot to unfold slower and more deliberately. Still, it's a nice little time-passer.

By the way, Hamilton's first wife is played by Mayo Methot--a woman who was, for a while, married to Humphrey Bogart. Together, she and her hubby were nicknamed 'the battling Bogarts' because their relationship was so tumultuous.
