One Rainy Afternoon (1936)
Ida Lupino, Hugh Herbert & Roland Young
Wow! What a sweet movie. I just love Ida Lupino as a young actress. When I first saw this "Movie of the Week" it struck a memory cell. And, I actually found it and watched it just awhile ago. Incredible what we learn from movies as we watch them another time. I had never really noticed, before, that he was actually having an affair with a Married Woman. And, that the reason Federer winded up in the wrong seat was because the theater attendant misread his ticket upside down as '99' when it should have been '66'. So, he's now sitting next to Ida in the dark, speaking to her (she thinks him annoying), and finally reaches over and kisses her. I noticed that Erick Rhodes (Alfredo), Ida's character fiancé also appeared in "On Your Toes" (1939) starring Vera Zorina (Ballerina), Eddie Albert and Alan Hale. Erick plays exactly the same type roll. Did anyone notice that Federer's court fine was only 150 Francs? However, all the different taxes tacked on amounted to 1000 Francs. Whoa!!! And, did anyone notice how the Media played their photo trick back then also? Ha! Anyway, although not a classic, it's still an enjoyable movie. However, I believe it was an "A" level film. Please correct me if in error. Hey, the "Kiss" incident started with a love song and ends with a love song and another 'Kiss'. What an ending.
