little Warners comedy
16 October 2014 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

"Titanic" actress Gloria Stuart is one of the stars of "Maybe It's Love," a 1935 comedy from Warners based on the Maxwell Anderson play "Saturday's Children" and remade in 1940. Stuart was then 25 years old; big fame would elude her until 62 years later.

Here, she's a secretary, Bobby, in love with Rims (Ross Alexander) who doesn't declare himself. To move things along, she pretends to be interested in another man, Adolph Jr. (Phillip Reed) to make him jealous.

Bobby and Rims marry, but find the going difficult. Bobby's big family (Frank McHugh, Ruth Donnelly, Helen Lowell, and Henry Travers) always seems to be around, and they're having trouble making ends meet. The two separate.

This movie has a lot of warmth and charm, but it's not exactly original. The pretty Stuart was a fresh, amiable actress. Phillip Reed at some angles looks like Tyrone Power - the hair, the hairline, the eyebrows, even the clothes, though he wasn't anywhere near as handsome. Ross Alexander, in the role played on Broadway by Humphrey Bogart, is cute with a real character face. Such a short, sad life, it was almost hard to watch him. Frank McHugh and the rest of the cast were delightful.

The movie is short and was probably cut, due to what looks like an editing problem - the couple goes from being in love to breaking up -- it really seems like something was left out.

See it for the cast.
