365 Day Movie Challenge (2014) - #174: Love Before Breakfast (1936) - dir. Walter Lang
Carole Lombard is lovely as usual here, but Preston Foster is like a poor man’s George Brent; aside from the mustache, he has very little personality. Cesar Romero is cute as Lombard’s boyfriend and Joyce Compton is funny in her usual Southern belle stereotype role, but there are better Lombard films. (There’s an awful “comedic” plot point involving Lombard getting a black eye.) As always, though, Ted Tetzlaff’s cinematography is gorgeous, lighting the leading lady perfectly. Travis Banton and Brymer also made some fabulous gowns, including an amazing feathery creation for a costume party. Some nice editing by Maurice Wright too.
