A little schmaltzy and tough to believe, though the actors did their best.
13 January 2020 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"I Love That Man" certainly isn't one of Edmund Lowe's better films, though despite a difficult to believe and schmaltzy plot, it is worth seeing.

When the story begins, Roger (Lowe) is a con man who delights in taking advantage of suckers. When he meets Grace (Nancy Carroll), however, he pretends to be a nice guy because he knows she's awfully nice and wholesome. They soon fall in love. Then, he learns that he's a wanted man and before running away, he tells Grace who he really is. Inexplicably, she STILL agrees to run away with him.

In a new part of the country, Grace helps Roger set up a new business and become a part of the community. Despite his intentions to staying a con man, she molds him into a respectable guy. But then a couple 'friends' from Rogers past arrive...and they demand he pay them the $20,000 he owes them or else! What follows is a very dark version of the Edward G. Robinson comedy "Larceny Inc.", believe it or not.

So is this film believable in any way? Absolutely not. But the acting is good, the story is engaging and the ending with the knife pretty brutal. Worth seeing but far from a logical picture.
