Movie Info

Paramount Pictures seldom fully utilized the talents of contract player Carole Lombard, as witness such tedious programmers as Sinners in the Sun. Lombard plays Doris Blake, an elegant fashion model who spurns her auto-mechanic suitor Jimmy Martin (Chester Morris) in favor of married millionaire Eric Nelson (Walter Byron). Securing a job as a chauffeur, Jimmy marries his employer, wealthy heiress Claire (Adrienne Ames), on the rebound. Ultimately, both hero and heroine realize that (here comes the message) MONEY ISN'T EVERYTHING, whereupon both turn their backs on money and creature comforts to find happiness with each other. Somewhere near the bottom of the cast list is Cary Grant, who would later co-star with Carole Lombard in the infinitely better romantic drama In Name Only.

  • Romance ingênuo e previsível que desperdiça Lombard, mas traz Morris em uma performance simpática. Segundo longa de Cary Grant, que já exibe carisma em suas poucas cenas.

    Creaky old antique with Carole lovely and animated but Chester Morris just a big old hunk of hamburger. How he was ever a prominent leading man is a mystery. Speaking of prominent leading men this was Cary Grant's second film and even though he's only in two scenes he radiates a magnetism that Morris was always woefully without.
