The Gilded Lily

Breezy romance, with plenty of entertainment. Fred MacMurray and Ray Milland love the girl, the one as a matter-of-fact mugg, the other as a semi-cad son of an English duke. Claudette Colbert is idealistic and romantic and falls for the Briton, but rebounds for the clinch into the arms of the unembossed Yankee.

Claudette Colbert is idealistic and romantic and falls for the Briton, but rebounds for the clinch into the arms of the unembossed Yankee.

More incredible portions of the story are artfully dressed up with gags and dialog by Claude Binyon and slipped through deftly by director Wesley Ruggles so that no opportunities to notice the fictional liberties develop.

Adaptation is from a yarn by Melville Baker and Jack Kirkland. Its basic theme is of a working miss in the US, who is catapulted into international fame as the ‘no’ girl who jilted an English lord.
