It took three years from the time this movie was completed until it was released in the US, and the wait was not quite worth it. A romantic comedy reminiscent of many others, it's the story of seemingly impoverished Oberon who lives in a large old drafty mansion with ancient servants. The

place belongs to her uncle, and she thinks that it is all he ever had. When he dies and leaves her almost $90 million, her life is tossed into chaos. She'd been happily engaged to poor local physician Harrison, but her sudden wealth causes him to step away, as he doesn't care to play consort to

her queen. Oberon goes on a trip to Europe, visits Monte Carlo, Switzerland, Italy, and France, and is besieged by more than her share of gigolos and adventurers, all eager to lay their paws on her cash. In the course of the film, Oberon realizes love, not money, is all that matters in affairs of

the heart, so she returns to patient Harrison, and they marry and honeymoon on the continent with a third-class railway ticket Harrison has paid for with his own meager funds. Good production and Korda's usual first-class style. Two years after this film was made, Oberon married producer Korda.

That marriage ended in 1945. OVER THE MOON was a pleasant, frothy farce that offended no one and is as easily forgotten as last year's second-place finisher in the National League East. We give Howard credit for direction, but it didn't appear on the screen.
