Critic Reviews for Private Number
Audience Reviews for Private Number
Being on the thick and slow side of the family tree I'm only now beginning to see just how important money and status and class (and the desiring of all that) had to do with films around the time of the Great Depression. Duh. Here's one wherein the inherent dream addressed, surprise, surprise, is to marry into money. Young is a lowly working girl w/o even bus fare who gets a job as a serving wench for some bluebloods whose son takes a liking to her. Is she merely the fortune hunting wretch his family paints her as, or is she the real deal, and if she is does it matter because she's still from poverty? At least in this one the rich are not painted entirely as bores and cads. A Great Dane nearly steals the whole thing which kinda lets you know about the rest of the cast.
