Thanks to Kay Francis and George Brent
22 September 2016 | by drednmSee all my reviews

Solid romantic drama with Kay Francis as a volunteer at Travelers Aid and George Brent as a construction manager at the Golden Gate Bridge (which didn't open until 1937) showcases the breezy charm of two top stars.

The stars live for their jobs but romance is difficult since each one is on call 24 hours a day. Brent's job is complicated by a protection racket run by Barton MacLane, and Francis' job is complicated by a spoiled heiress (Patricia Ellis) she gets stuck with because her mother donates so much money to Travelers Aid. It gets even more complicated when Ellis takes a shine to Brent.

Lots of good supporting players here: Ann Shoemaker, John Wray, Robert Barrat, Zeffie Tilbury, June Travis, Donald Woods, Gavin Gordon, Frankie Darro, Spencer Charters, Mary Forbes, Sarah Padden, Paul Panzer, Joseph Crehan.

Easy to see why Kay Francis was a top star of the time.
