Movie Info

Actor-director Lowell Sherman is at his most suave and sophisticated in Bachelor Apartment. An inveterate seducer, Wayne Carter (Sherman) has to virtually maintain a revolving door to keep the girls coming to and going from his deluxe penthouse. Eventually, however, Carter meets the one woman with whom he'd probably like to settle down for life: Helene Andrews (Irene Dunne), the sensible, marriage-minded sister of Sherman's current amour Lita (Claudia Dell). Once Carter is hooked by Helene (as we all knew he would be), he must figure out how to wrest himself from the clutches of predatory vamp Agatha Carraway (Mae Murray). Though unavoidably dated, Bachelor Apartment still provides 74 minutes' worth of light entertainment for Late Late Show aficionados.

Audience Reviews for Bachelor Apartment


The tough life of a bachelor in the 30's; having a butler in an apartment, women leaving jewelry all over the place, and women coming up to visit for carnal thoughts. It's the old story of how a good girl can change a bachelor from his wandering ways. One of his old conquests, Agatha , Mae Murray, keeps showing up at the worst times in pre-code dress, some of which are quit revealing. Lots of fast talking, people in hats, and the usual misunderstanding of situations between the sexes leads to the obvious conclusion of Dunne and Sherman getting together.
