Movie Info

Immigrant Tony Patucci (Charles Laughton) may be the successful owner of a vineyard in California, but he's self-conscious about his poor English and lacks social grace. So when he spies fetching waitress Amy (Carole Lombard), he decides to pursue her by letter and tosses in a photo of his handsome foreman Joe (William Gargan) for good measure. When Amy comes to visit, she's furious at the deception. Tony eventually wins her over, but she can't ignore her growing feelings for Joe.

    dated with laughton giving an over the top performance but carole lombard gives a beautiful one, not exactly balancing it out but still a worthwhile view.
