Storyline

Everyweek Newsmagazine editor Richard Kurt pursues psuedo-portait artist Marion Forsythe on her arrival from Europe after painting (and possibly being involved with) notables all over the continent. He convinces her to write her biography as a feature for his magazine. An old "beau" of hers also looks her up in New York; he is running for U.S. Senator from their home state, and is engaged to an influential publisher's daughter. He is fearful that Marion's tales could embarass him, so he tries to persuade her and Kurt to abandon the idea. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Classic Ann Harding Film
19 September 2007 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Ann Harding plays the role of Marion Forsythe who is an artist and looks absolutely beautiful in her role. Marion wears very little makeup and at times looks likes a ghost. Robert Montgomery,(RIchard Kurt) seeks out Marion and tries to get a biography of her along with many other men who have had relationships with her in the past. Edward Everett Horton, (Leander Nolan) claims to have been romantically involved with her and Edward Arnold, (Mre. Feydak) gives a great supporting role. There is plenty of funny scenes and lots of slapstick comedy which went along with most films from 1935. This is truly a great film Classic of Ann Hareding who was a great film star along with all the other actors in this great film Classic. Enjoy.
