Movie Info

When American showgirl Suzy (Jean Harlow) finds herself in London without work, she plans to leave her career behind and find a rich husband. Instead, she falls for brilliant but broke inventor Terry (Franchot Tone), who is developing an airplane stabilizer. When Terry is mistakenly shot by a spy, Suzy fears she will be blamed and flees to Paris, where she returns to a life of singing and marries flyboy Andre (Cary Grant). But things get complicated when Suzy learns that Terry has survived.

    This movie is all over the map. The casting couch, racetrack gambling, whirlwind romance, espionage, cold blooded murder, some songs (including Cary Grant briefly singing), adultery, fiery crashes, aerial dogfighting, and a good dose of melodrama besides. I like Jean Harlow and she's effective at making us care for her character in this film, conveying a sense of sweetness and vulnerability while at the same time being a bit of a gold-digger initially. Unfortunately, her acting is sorely lacking in several scenes. She's better in 'Libeled Lady' and 'Wife vs. Secretary', both of which were also made in 1936, and in many of her other roles. Franchot Tone's Irish accent comes and goes somewhat comically, but he's also likeable, and had some nice banter with Harlow. It's interesting to see Cary Grant as an aerial ace and obnoxious playboy, though it's kind of funny to think he's supposed to be French. The real trouble, though, is the film is a not well executed mix of romance, drama, and comedy. Such a combination is difficult, and while it strikes the right balance in first half hour, it goes downhill from there, with plot holes and some pretty ridiculous scenes. You can definitely do better.

    Jean & Cary make an odd team in this, one of Harlow's last films. It's an okay drama but Jean was always best in comedies.

    Another great movie from Jean Harlow. Sucha shame that she died so young. She was soo talented. I also really enjoyed Franchot Tone in this movie. He was very enjoyable. Perhaps a bit predictable but I like it.
