Super Reviewer

Robert Montgomery plays a starving artist who impulsively marries heiress Rosalind Russell. He doesn?t care if his art sells, but with her encouragement he becomes quite successful, and the success goes to his head. Now she must bring him back down to earth. Enjoyable comedy, good MGM production. The stars are always enjoyable to watch. The fine supporting cast includes Robert Benchley, Mickey Rooney, Monty Woolley and Helen Vinson. Directed by George Fitzmaurice.

Live, Love and Learn (1937) -- [5.5] -- Robert Montgomery is a care-free painter and Rosalind Russell is a socialite looking for a more rustic lifestyle. In the tradition of screwball comedy, the unlikely lovers get married and revel in their poverty. But after Montgomery's talent catches the notice of a stuffy gallery owner (Monty Woolley), the two start living the high life... until Russell starts feeling a little deja vu. "Live, Love and Learn" adheres to a tired formula, but it's boosted by an effervescent cast. It's not a terribly memorable comedy, but I like the scenes where Montgomery, Russell, and Robert Benchley (who plays the third wheel in the relationship) play practical jokes on Woolley. Mickey Rooney appears in one scene.
