Insipid and overly sentimental
31 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Poverty Row Invincible Pictures gave us Tango in the year 1936. It casts wealthy playboy Matty Kemp falling for model Marian Nixon and getting married. But he's not yet 21 and his family wants him to marry someone more respectable. Especially older brother George Meeker who tried to put the moves on Nixon himself and got rebuffed.

Hanging around is composer/band-leader Chick Chandler who would like to have gotten things going with Nixon. Her best friends are Marie Prevost and Warren Hymer, a couple of players who died way too young. And in the cast in roles perfectly suited to them are stocking king Herman Bing and fashion photographer Franklin Pangborn.

The performances are sincere and some of the character players are memorable for the body of their work. But the production values are what you expect from a poverty row outfit. The story is insipid and overly sentimental as well.

I'd skip this one.
