A New Year's Eve to Die For . . .
This is one of the rare big-budget David O. Selznick blockbuster movies that fell into public domain by accident. It is also rare to see the original screwball comedy blonde Carole Lombard in a serious part, and you'll see plenty of Carole in tears and dispair. The medical crisis scenes were inspired by an experience that David O. Selznick had when trying to fly a special serum to his critically ill brother.
Our movie opens with Jimmy Stewart, as young lawyer John Mason, returning to the New York office from a short trip to Boston to get a deposition for an upcoming trial. It seems that while in Boston he met and quickly married a girl that he fell in love with on first sight. This bodes trouble for him at the office, since the senior partner Judge Doolittle had plans to hook his young daughter up with John. But John and Jane are wildly in love, and nothing can slow down their relationship.
Did I say 'nothing'? Well, this happy relationship is about to endure trials and tribulations that few marriages would survive. First there is the mother-in-law, John's mother that lives with them . . . And Mother has always been the head of the household . . . 'Nuff said.
Then things at work don’t go as expected, and not only does his competitor Carter get the next big promotion, but the same day that John is about to ask for a raise, Doolittle informs him that times are tough, the clients are cutting back, and John must take a twenty five percent pay cut. But Jane is loyally faithful to John, and gives him more moral support than most men are fortunate enough to get.
Jane is determined to make a success of Johnny and their marriage come hell or high water . . . Until New Year's Eve and the big company party . . . The party that Johnny and Jane will not attend . . .
It is New Year's Eve and near the stroke of midnight . . . and Johnny and Jane decide to get a divorce . . . Love at first sight may be ending on the happiest night of the year . . . Johnny and Jane have a champagne toast to the end of their whirlwind love affair . . . The two lovers that swore that they were made for each other are ending it all on New Year's Eve . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
