Does this story seem familar?....
As I watched "Lady with a Past" (1932) for the first time, something about the story seemed very familiar. Then it hit me.... "French Kiss" (1995) with Meg Ryan and Kevin Klein! Only in the 1932 movie, the girl wins back the guy who originally dismissed her with the guidance of a gigolo-like accomplice (also in France). I very much prefer the 1995 version, where the girl questions her original love's newfound attraction and ends up falling for the accomplice instead. Smart choice! Both movies were enjoyable, though, and perhaps each ending a reflection of its time.
Lady With A Past
- Jean Beasley
I loved watching this movie as I was getting ready for work Friday morning! From the costumes to the casting of actors & actresses for this entertaining movie, I found myself pausing to watch such scenes as the tango being danced by Constance Bennett as she gracefully moved on the dance floor with the special placement of her arms - how I'd love to see this classic star on "Dancing With the Stars"!!! Later that very evening my family gathered to celebrate my sister's 60th birthday & I demonstrated that very scene as we entertained my sister & our families!!! Later, I found myself researching the biographical backgrounds of Constance Bennett, Ben Lyon, and David Manners - such fascinating people. I'd love to see the the movie again - completely - as I had to get to work & missed the ending. Thank you TCM for your friendly & informative website so that I could read the full synopsis online.
I got to enjoy a large part of this movie while getting ready for work this morning, but had to leave without seeing the end (and my video recorder was out of space). But what I saw was lots of fun and I liked Constance Bennett as much as or more than in anything else I've seen of hers. Playing the innocent, she didn't seem as stilted as I feel she often is. Ben Lyon was terrific as her semi-fake gigolo and really energized the action in all of his scenes. I look forward to seeing this in its entirety at some point, although who knows when it'll be back on. . .
