An underrated 1930 romantic comedy that is charming, stylish and light-hearted.

The wonderful Carole Lombard is Regi Allen, a manicurist who has been hurt so many times in love that she has become cynical and hardened, claiming that financial security is now her only concern in marriage prospects. She meets Allen Macklyn (Ralph Bellamy), a wealthy young man who is confined to

a wheelchair In addition to being rich, he is madly in love with her and has serious matrimonial intentions. Fred MacMurray is Theodore Drew III, a poor playboy from a once wealthy and prominent family. He is about to marry Vivian Snowden (Astrid Allwyn) for the same reasons Regi may marry Allen.

When Theodore comes into Regi's shop one day, she thinks he's wealthy, so she gladly accepts when he invites her to dinner.

Like many screwball comedies of its era, this one offers snappy badinage and captivating performances but it's not nearly as riotous as some; rather it achieves an authentic tenderness and eroticism that is as memorable as it is rare.
