Critic Reviews for No Man of Her Own

All Critics (2)

This light, carefree, well-acted romantic comedy, the only film Gable made with future wife Carole Lomabrd, is directed by Charles Ruggles, riding high after his success with the 1931 Oscar-winning Western Cimarron.

A light piffle of a movie, not particularly complex, certainly not tense, and not a laugh riot either. But don't get me wrong - this is a pleasant film.

Audience Reviews for No Man of Her Own


Utterly ordinary comedy drama whose sole distinction is the pairing of Gable and Lombard in their only appearance together. They do well but Carole was still a few years from her breakthrough as a major star in Twentieth Century and here is just a leading lady with too blonde hair and awful makeup hiding her natural radiance. Worth one watch for the pairing but you'll forget it almost as soon as it's over.

I really loved the chemistry between Lombard and Gable in this film. It was unique in the fact that you could really feel it growing in the film and it wasn't just a single level throughout.


Worth watching if for no other reason than to see future husband and wife Gable and Lombard together on screen.
