SPRING IS HERE (1930)


Guest dredagain

Recommended Posts

Not bad early musical based on a flop Broadway show by Rodgers and Hart.

 

Willful Betty (Bernice Claire) thinks she loves flashy Steve (Lawrence Gray) because Terry (Alexander Gray) is boring. But with a little coaching from her dizzy mom (Louise Fazenda), Terry turns into a lover and wins the day.

 

Set among the "Long Island set," this breezy little film is full of smart retorts and good songs. It also features a top performance by Ford Sterling as the frantic father and good work by Inez Courtney and Frank Albertson as the younger set.

 

Claire has a pleasing soprano and the Grays (not related) also sing well. Best known song here is "With a Song in My Heart." The Brox Sisters show up at the party and sing "Cryin' for the Carolines." Also noted in the cast are Natalie Moorhead as the vamp, Bess Flowers as a guest, Gretchen Thomas as Maude, and Wilbur Mack as the vicar.

 

While Lawrence Gray gets top billing here, it's Bernice Claire and Alexander Gray who are really the stars.
