Audience Reviews for The Richest Girl in the World

Miriam Hopkins plays love scenes well, and seeing Fay Wray as a brunette was interesting, but they can't save this clunker, which has a rich woman swapping identities with her secretary to determine the true motivations of her suitors, after having had a string of fortune hunters previously. A few scenes brought a smile, such as drinking several shots of Scotch as a tonic for being sick, but this one could be skipped.

Good players in an idiotic game that has more then a tinge of viciousness to it. Fun for a while but the bluff goes on too long and turns to meanness.

A delightful romcom. Watched it cuz my girl Miriam Hopkins in it. She plays the title character and does a wonderful job. Fay Wray also was stellar in her supporting role. Her eyes and cheek bones are just hypnotic. Henry Stephenson was a tickle but Miriam was certainly the star. The way the movie ends leaves some questions open and I do find that a bit annoying...I can assume all I want, but if I don't see it on screen it didn't really happen.
