No problem with Carole Lombard in this modest sentimental comedy, she has the part down pat.

Audience Reviews for Lady by Choice


Okay but no Lady for a Day. May Robson is always a pleasure to watch and Carole Lombard is full of snap but the story is as old as the hills and not terribly well directed.

Obviously, I love Carole Lombard, but I sometimes find her roles or the way she acts them a little over the top, ie Twentieth Century and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. This role was more subdued and definitely heart-felt. I loved the relationship between Lombard and Robson and their characters. The story is reminiscent of Camille - wrong side of the tracks girl in love with an heir who could lose everything by marrying her - but not quite as well. It is still worth viewing.
