Movie Info

Songwriter Terry Trindale (Robert Taylor), who has a crush on Consuelo Croyden (Norma Shearer), racks up a large gambling debt to her while trying to gain her attention. To pay it off, she proposes that he pretend to be her lover, in order to make her former beau, Tony (George Sanders), jealous. Terry gladly accepts the offer and performs his duties with dedication, hoping that Consuelo will start to like him better. But, the more he keeps her from Tony, the more she seems to want Tony.

Critic Reviews for Her Cardboard Lover

All Critics (1) | Rotten (1)

  • Cukor'a adaptation of the French farce is disappointing due to the miscasting of Robert Taylor, signaling the end of Norma Shearer's screen career.

Audience Reviews for Her Cardboard Lover

  • Sep 02, 2015
    Norma's final film is an innocuous affair and she looks great but it's a trifle that was hopelessly out of date in '42 despite the presence of George Sanders in the cast. She refused to move with the times so it's for the best that she chose a well-heeled retirement.
