This is the third filmed version of Sidney Howard's play. Previously
this was filmed a THE SECRET HOUR (1928) with Pola Negri and Jean
Hersholt and as A LADY TO LOVE (1930) with Vilma Banky and Edward G.
Here, Charles Laughton plays the Italian Tony, a successful grape
grower in Napa Valley. He goes to San Francisco and is smitten with a
waitress named Amy (Carole Lombard) and decides to marry her. Back home
he gets his pal (William Gargan) to write a letter. She answers back.
Eventually they send a picture and invite her to Napa.
Unfortunately they send a picture of Gargan. But Lombard has nothing to
go back to but her dreary and demeaning job so she stays. Despite her
best efforts she falls for Gargan right under Robinson's nose.
Basically a love triangle story, there's enough humor to defuse the
slightly clichéd story. Lombard give a great performance as the feisty
Amy. Laughton is hammy and loud but a pleasure to watch. Gargan won an
Oscar nomination for the hapless Joe, torn between his devotion to Tony
and his love for Amy.
Supporting cast includes Harry Carey as the doctor, Frank Fay as the
priest, Victor Kilian as the photographer, Janet Fox as Mildred, and
the film debuts of Karl Malden and Tom Ewell.
Good location shooting in Napa Valley opens up the film and adds a nice
