Three Loves Has Nancy is a completely daffy, reasonably entertaining romp by Janet Gaynor, Robert Montgomery, Franchot Tone and a group of familiar supporting players.

Story is one of the trivialities about a semi-conscious smalltown gal who gets stranded in New York and becomes the object of a furious set-to between a flighty author and his hell-raising publisher. On that slender framework have been scribbled all the balmy situations, crackpot gags and slapstick whimsy that six frenzied scripters [story by Lee Loeb and Mort Braus] could concoct.

Director Richard Thorpe and the cast play it with broad relish. As the naive little menace from the sticks, Gaynor gives an admirably straight-faced performance, her intense seriousness contrasting sharply with the wild and woolly clowning of Montgomery and Tone. Latter two, as the author and publisher, respectively, pull all the acting stops.
