Douglas Doty and Harry D’Arrast skeletonized a dandy scenario. Donald Ogden Stewart brightened it up with dialog. Fredric March makes it brilliant with playing. March steals the picture.

Laughter has its drama in a suicide and again in a girl’s desire to leave wealth, to gamble with the irresponsible composer she fell in love with in Paris, just before her marriage, to go to gaiety and mingle with laughs. The girl is Nancy Carroll and the composer March.

Hugely enjoyable entertainment, with plenty of comedy.
