Maybe It's Love (1935)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Predictable but amusing romantic comedy from Warner has Gloria Stuart (The Invisible Man) playing a secretary who is waiting for the man she loves (Ross Alexander) to marry her but she must use another man to make him jealous. After they're finally married, both realize that the married life is harder than they thought. The story here certainly isn't anything new but the glowing charm of Stuart really makes this film a lot better than the script deserved. There's also some great character actors who add wonderful support and they include Cagney's buddy Frank McHugh as the brother-in-law, Henry Travers as the father and Ruth Donnelly as the sister. All three add some nice laughs to the film with McHugh stealing the film as the dimwitted sap. There are a couple problems with the film and one of them is Alexander who just isn't charming enough for the role. Another problem is that the film runs 63-minutes, which is too short because it leads to a major plot gap towards the end of the film. One scene the couple is happily married and then out of no where they are fighting and breaking up. This film certainly isn't a classic but if you're a fan of any of the actors then it's worth viewing once.
