LADIES SHOULD LISTEN (1934)

ladies should listen

De Lussac's friend Paul Vernet , who is in love with millionaire's daughter Susie Flamberg , has to face a great jealous rage, as Susie has fallen in love with De Lussac and has brought in her father to force him into marrying her. Julian is flattered by Anna’s adoration, but in no way returns it and practically tosses Anna from his apartment as Marguerite rushes in. Once again, Cary, playing Julian de Lussac, is frolicking about with any and every beautiful woman in Paris. Cary Grant is brutally miscast as a philandering young Parisian. Single young men might do well, until this film has passed, to speak in code over their home phones or to call from the corner drug store. Grant looks great and his comedic talent shows up very positively. She gets him engaged to an heiress, thereby assuring him of financial support for the Chilean proposition.

Anyway, all kinds of situations are conjured up with mistaken love affairs, con operations, and finally Julian de Lussac Grant ends up with the switchboard operator, because she has saved his life many times by eavesdropping in on his phone conversations. Why there existed a besotted, bespectacled, misfit heiress was beyond my understanding. Nydia Westman and Edward Everett Horton contribute farce comedy effects in pleasing fashion. She entangles, and disentangles, his romantic affairs. Rosita Moreno and her husband begin working the badger game on him to get the paper away.

Definitely always worth a listen. Cary Grant and Frances Drake make an ingratiating team. Grant is alternately engrossed in affairs of the heart and worry over his expiring option on a Chilean nitrate concession. Almost immediately he finds himself the object of the predatory attentions of an avaricious young Chilean blackmailer and his fascinating wife, a solicitous telephone operator in his apartment house, his best friend's fiancée, his best friend and his best friend's fiancée's father. In the end of this mess of a movie, Anna, of course ends up with Julian. Nydia Westman is very effective in her comedy assignment, and Rosita Moreno, from vaudeville and Spanish films, will get the males interested in her pulchritude.

Miss Drake, as Anna Mirelle, has a perfect eavesdropping set-up. The piece has several clever twists and is commendably brief. Edward Everett Horton and Nydia Westman are splendidly cast as the secondary lovers and George Barbier as the irate father. Meantime his friend, Edward Everett Horton, is the fiancée of an eccentric wealthy and myopic gal, Nydia Westman. Because you are just putty. Horton is at his usual best and George Barbier, too, has an easy time of it.

He's on vacation and has this apparently valuable contract in his possession when Moreno and Corio try to get it away from him with a scam. The woman do what they like with you. Claude Binyon and Frank Butler overworked hoke and puns in their adaptation, and these were all overstrained in the direction. And lest I forget, here’s another movie where Cary sings! A good deal of it is actually unfunny, and all of it is too synthetic. A handsome, but impetuous, young bachelor, Julian de Lussac, returns from Chile to Paris; penniless, save for a week's option on a nitrate concession. If you have any legal issues please contact the appropriate media file owners or host sites. When Marguerite pretends to jilt Julian over the phone, he pretends to shoot himself over the telephone so that she will rush to his side.

He plays the part for comedy, miscuing several times. When she discovers that the man's current girlfriend is actually part of a scheme to swindle him out of some mineral rights he owns, she devises a plot to save him and expose the con artists. Grant is in Paris to work a deal. For example, he has a storm sheet and thunder attachment rigged up in his flat so that by pressure of a button he can create synthetic thunder showers and dissuade conscientious and home-loving young housewives and others of the distaff persuasion to linger beyond the habitual quarter-to-six, at which hour they must hurry home to hubby, or some one. Starring Cary Grant, Frances Drake, Edward Everett Horton and an early screen appearance of Ann Sheridan who undergoes a different name than Ann Sheridan. Simultaneously, Westman, a spinster, puts her throbbing body before.
