Audience Reviews for The Amazing Quest of Ernest Bliss (The Amazing Adventure)(Romance and Riches)

Herein, a nearly transparent crowd pleaser, only a short story actually, of a playboy who learns about "what's important in life" from "the regular people" when he takes a medically advised year off from his sizeable inherited fortune. This sort of idea was a popular (and profitable) theme in mass entertainment: that working stiffs understood life better than the swells. There are no surprises here, only the charm of the time (if the Great Depression can be expressed as charming) and the performers delivery, lead by Grant himself.
I haven't seen anything by Grant in awhile and needed a fix of the 100% genuine article.
This vehicle could be remade ... its a challenging proposition.

Grant's worst movie, it's not funny, the story is boring, and his acting isn't up to par. I've seen some good reviews of this movie on here, so maybe I'll watch it again sometime and give it another chance.

Holy transitions! I'm shocked I didn't see star wipe. I have to say for a 1937 film, it had really, really low production value. Typical, sweet story, but yet again, it is a Cary Grant film, therefore it earns something. Entertaining, but not overly.
