No fool like an old fool
22 August 2019 | by aldiborontiSee all my reviews

John Halliday is the old fool here who, after a long and good marriage to Bele Bennett, at the age of 50 unceremoniously dumps her and marries an empty-headed young flapper, Dorothy Burgess, and trades a life of quiet content for one of constant partying. Halliday soon realizes that he's a fish out of water and begins to yearn for his life with Belle. But can he get her back?

The cast does a wonderful job in bringing drawing-room comedy to life. Halliday is excellent, so too is the wonderful Belle Bennett, whose penultimate movie this was. Tragically she died from cancer the next year at the age of just 41. As Stella Dallas however she remains immortal. It's Dorothy Burgess who steals the picture though with her portrayal of the empty-headed danseuse who becomes Halliday's second wife.

It's an amusing if insubstantial picture but certainly worth a watch.
