Mentor and lover

Of course Paris Interlude never got closer to France than MGM's back lot. It was highly doubtful that MGM would have laid out a lot of money for a B film taken from a flop play.

Laura Perelman's play All Good Americans is about a Parisian expatriate company of hard partying Americans who work at all kinds of occupations to pay the rent. It ran only 40 performances on Broadway the year before and among other people in the cast in a small part was James Stewart. I half expected F. Scott Fitzgerald to pop up in a supporting role in the film.

But the film centers around Otto Kruger with Madge Evans who's in love with him and Robert Young whom he mentors in the foreign correspondent trade. He's kind of sort of promised to marry Evans, but leaves her flat with Robert Young to comfort her while he's been transferred to American, then China.

Need I say more than eventually the course of true love takes its course in this rather sappy and old fashioned romantic melodrama.

Best in this film is Una Merkel, gal pal to Evans who's the only one who sees everything clearly and offers sound advice to one and all.

Not the best work for any of the cast except maybe Merkel.
