    Too histrionic for my taste, and I know it was the whole point of the story, but, I adore Carole Lombard but in this one She was so annoying I couldn't enjoy the film. People keep telling how on point was John Barrymore in here, but as Lombard it was bothering hear and see so much drama, wailing and complaining.

    Love these lines from Carol Lombard's character:

    quote:
    Lily Garland:
    —That's the trouble with you, Oscar. With both of us. We're not people, we're lithographs. We don't know anything about love unless it's written and rehearsed. We're only real in between curtains.


    And yup, that happens to everybody, feeling and comparing to some of the greatest scenes in Cinema, or the beauty in lines from a story in a book; we might as well being educated from all of these mediums, we might as well feel not so real, not so adept to love, not so knowledgeable in human behavior, clumsy at human relations, or unable to find meaning in our lives, at times...

    I like Carol Lombard but when she starts wailing and crying, it feels like fingernails on a blackboard to me. Barrymore was fabulous. His wild-eyed ego-maniac act is so lovable! 4 years 9 months ago
