Movie Info

Patsy Patterson (May Robson) is an elderly, brash drunk whose unpredictable behavior lands her in a retirement home. Alabam Lee (Carole Lombard) is a fan dancer whose lewd act gets her charged with indecency. In an effort to clean up her image, Alabam's publicist (Raymond Walburn) decides she should "adopt" a mother for Mothers Day, and Alabam picks Patsy. What starts off as a publicity stunt, however, soon develops into a very real and meaningful relationship between the two women.

    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.
