The Chorus Girl, the Millionaire and the Blind Man

The Weaker Sex is often the Stronger Sex because of the Weakness of the Stronger Sex for the Weaker Sex. . . . . Have truer words ever been spoken? The doctor utters these words at the house party of the millionaire while his friends and the hired chorus girls giggle and enjoy the evening. This is a love story, with an awesome pre-code story plot, and while the ending is amazing, I didn’t like it. . . . The ending is different, and probably shocking for 1930 audiences. . . . Or maybe not. . . . 1930 was a unique year in the U.S. . . . If you are not a history buff and do not understand, contact me and I will clue you in. Anyway, I didn’t care for the ending. . . . Maybe it is my Mennonite ancestry, maybe I’ve just been dropped on my head one too many times. As our love story opens we are at war, and Jeff crashes in an airplane in France, and because of a bad blow to the back of his head, he is blind. Returning to America, he makes his buddy promise to tell his girlfriend that he has died. . . He doesn’t want her to know that he is blind. Jeff also promises his buddy that if he ever meets the man who built the plane he crashed in, he will kill him on sight. His girlfriend Mary is a chorus girl, and she mourns his death and vows never to love another man. . . . Ever. Mary is at the house party of the millionaire as a hired hostess to flirt with the business guests, and the millionaire sees her and will fall in love with her. This leads to that and Mary decides to marry the millionaire, even though he knows that she will never love him. Of course the millionaire is the man who built the airplane that Jeff crashed in. . . . And the millionaire will meet Jeff and offer him the operation that will give him his sight back. . . . And Jeff will see again. . . . He will see the man who built the plane that he crashed in. . . . He will see the man’s young wife. . . . His Mary. . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
