Storyline

Shiftless playboy Tom Collier lives to jump from party to party--until he meets photographer Christie Sage. Through Christie, Tom takes over the ownership of The Bantam, a liberal magazine which opposes everything his family represents. As Tom and Christie's relationship deepens, love blooms and he proposes to her. Realizing that she could never fit in with Tom's social circle, Christie says no, a decision she later regrets. But Tom isn't left alone for long--scheming gold-digger Cecelia Henry wastes no time in catching Tom on the rebound and forcing him into a disastrous marriage. Written by Daniel Bubbeo

Warners film, good basic cast
12 July 2016 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

This is a good Warners film with a cast of their second-tier stars: Dennis Morgan, Alexis Smith, Jack Carson, Jane Wyatt, and Reginald Gardner. It was held for three years before release. Not sure why.

Tom Collier (Morgan) is from a wealthy family but not happy being a playboy or entering the family business. He wants to build something on his own. He purchases a liberal magazine instead.

Money-hungry Cecelia (Smith) has set her cap for Tom. He's in love with the magazine's photographer, Christie (Sheridan), but she shoots him down. Cecelia makes her move, and the two marry.

She's trouble from the beginning as she agrees with Tom's father about keeping the status quo. She certainly doesn't want Tom's best friend (Carson) around, who actually works for them as a butler.

Tom has to make a decision about who he is. One of the reviewers here thought it was unrealistic because Cecelia is a horrible person. Obviously he hasn't been exposed to what I have - and in my own family. Guys like the Tom character are absolute set-ups for these vipers, who will cut them off from their families and make them do things they don't want to do. Frankly they're a dime a dozen - snobby, patrician, and concerned with appearances.

Morgan, Sheridan, Carson, and Wyman as Christie's friend are very likable. We know how this film will end though it does push the envelope of the code.

Life's funny - Carson and Sheridan died in their early fifties, while Wyman and Morgan lived to ripe old ages. Here they're young, attractive, and working very well together. Pleasant film despite that mean Alexis Smith.
