A feeble, part-dialogue romance that stars Barrie as a dull Scotsman who becomes smitten with Brody, a wild, vivacious and sophisticated woman used to the good life. Desperate to start a romance with Brody, Barrie makes a futile attempt at becoming the funny, sparkling and suave man of

her dreams, but fails miserably. Realizing that it was just Brody's surface qualities that attracted him anyway, Barrie abandons his romantic notions and decides to be himself. PLAYTHING is one of the films made by Milland in Britain before his arrival in Hollywood in 1930. Milland, who started

out with second leads and graduated to roles in which he played the suave, self-assured romantic leading man, would later win an Academy Award in 1945 for his performance as an alcoholic writer in THE LOST WEEKEND.
