Love in the Rough Reviews:

Love in the Rough initially resembles the legendary disastrous early talkies which almost brought down the heavily indebted movie industry in the early '30s. Based on a Broadway flop enjoy with melody seemingly added on by hiring top song writing squad of Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh, it had all of the elements that the film moghuls though would add up to boffo box office but, because of the depression's comeback following the Oct. 29 stock store crash, folks didn't have a taste for stories about folks in evening dress or college hi jinks. The failure at the box office was everytime blamed on the static camera imposed by the crude and clunky sound equipment but this movie exposes that canard.The outdoor shots, seemingly with direct sound, are airy revelations. The camera work is fluid with out calling attention to itself with flashy moves. The musical numbers are imaginative, but, considering the work of Busby Berkeley to come, these are merely a stone age precursor. Maybe they didn't know enough at the time to shoot strictly in the studio with back projection process shots and post dubbed melody but this is enjoyable for nothing else than its atypical uniqueness. The static scenes are embarrassing, as in did anybody search the opening stage with broken porcelain funny at any time? Likewise the racial 'humor', Jewish, Italian and African-American, is highly cringe worthy. The plot is nearly non existent, a reminder of the pre-Showboat musical which was virtually a series of scenes, songs and routines from a Vaudeville review.This is an early performance by Robert Montgomery (his sixth of seven releases in 1930) in which he apparently sings, if, as I suspect, the melody was recorded direct. Dorothy Jordan looks pretty, at least for the standards of the time but doesn't project much personality, unlike her help one Dorothy McNulty who pops from the screen. Jordan was a star in late silent and early sound times but retired to become Mrs. Merian C. Cooper.After returning to vaudeville and radio, McNulty returned to movies and modest fame as Penny Singleton of the Blondie series. An interesting trivia item is the fact that both Montgomery (Screen Actors Guild) and Singleton (American Clan of Tons Artists) were union presidents.Montgomery's help was Benny Rubin, a dialect comic and a large star in vaudeville. It was Benny Rubin who folks like Jack Benny and Bob Hope aspired to become, and, years later, when they became large stars, they would everytime throw Benny a featured bit on radio and TV. Most of his comedy here is from hunger except for a laugh out loud two spot where Benny is acting as Mongomery's caddie and he meets Allan Lane's (as Harry Johnson) caddie going by the name 'C. Wesley Rappaport' and they conduct a hilarious dialogue in Yiddish. Even if it should be translated the subtitles wouldn't be able to hold up, and, with the timing lost, the humor would be lost. 'Rappaport' is not credited but as he appears soon leading a harmonica quartet perhaps it should be Borrah (Boris) Minevitch, Russian born leader of the Harmonica Rascals. The tune introduced by the Harmonica quartet provides an perfect occasion for an eccentric duet dance with Rubin and Singleton, one of the more delicious examples of what was lost with the demise of vaudeville.Again this is not anywhere near what might be considered a 'good' movie but professionals will search it more than just a historical curiosity. The plot is a swiss cheese. Montgomery is a golf winner working as a shipping clerk in Walter's Department Shop and is enlisted by the golf angry proprietor to support him in the country club championship. This gets Montgomery to the country club and meets the millionaires daughter whereby the "mentoring the boss" is just dropped. The rest is just terrible boy/rich woman bla bla bla.At least LOVE IN THE ROUGH attacks the groundless convention that it was the staticness of the early sound movies which nearly drove the Hollywood studios to the wall in the early 30s.


The movie is now a musical comedy makeover of the 1927 silent movie "Spring Fever", which starred William Haines and Joan Crawford. Montgomery plays the part of wise-cracking shipping clerk Jack Kelly who gets a vacation at a resort courtesy of his employer when the employer learns that Kelly is a nice golfer and the employer needs support with his own golf game. At the resort Kelly meets Marilyn Crawford, daughter of a wealthy industrialist, and the two fall in love. They elope with Marilyn believing that Kelly is wealthy too, but Kelly's conscience later starts to bother him about the false pretenses under which he has married his fresh wife.This film lacks the poignancy of the silent "Spring Fever". Montgomery does a nice job as Kelly, but nobody can really replace Joan Crawford as the leading lady. In fact, you receive the feeling that this actress was hired for her musical talents - she is cute nice in the musical numbers - and then as audiences began to reject musical movies in 1930, MGM slash a bunch of the musical numbers and was basically left with an ineffective leading lady in a movie lacking a nice plot. In the original, Kelly is marrying to up his station in life. In this film, Kelly falls in love with a woman who just happens to be the daughter of a wealthy man. This movie replaces all of the drama of Spring Fever with a musical comedy style. The musical numbers are catchy, but the comedy is somewhat dated. Released in September 1930, it is a nice example of how entertainment was transitioning from the Jazz Age into the Nice Depression. Suggested for those interested in movies from this time period.


There may have been only 2 "all golfie musicals" ever released but they both came out within a week of every another - "Love in the Rough" coming out on September 6th, "Follow Thru" on September 12th. In 1930 Bobby Jones place golf on the map by winning the "Grand Slam" - U.S. Open, Masters, British Launch and the British Amateur Tournaments. Even though it was a makeover of an MGM silent "Spring Fever", starring William Haines and Joan Crawford, "Love in the Rough" combined the topicality of golf with the infusion of musical numbers (then in vogue).Department shop clerk Jack Kelly (Robert Montgomery) is a nice enough golfer to be invited to an exclusive country club for 2 weeks to give his boss lessons. While there he meets cute Marilyn Crawford (adorable Dorothy Jordan) and it is love at first sight. She is joined by the Biltmore Trio (who seem to be on hand whenever melody and harmonizing are needed) and leads her flapper mates in an adorable number - "I'm Doin' That Thing". There is room in the sequence for a bellhop doing an eccentric tap dance and the gang finishes off with a "charlestony" kind finale - all choreographed by Sammy Lee.Jack is a nice golfer and organises to give Marilyn lessons - at the same time having to create excuses to his boss as to why he can't give him lessons as well. "I'm Learning a Lot From You" is other musical interlude that combines eccentric dancing and golfing lessons. The song gave a possibility to the helping couple - Benny Rubin, a dialect comedian, whose comedy wore thin after 5 mins and Dorothy McNulty (soon to be Penny Singleton), who had been a highlight of the 1930 film "Good News" - to strut their stuff. When rain sets in, that's the cue for Jack and Marilyn to duet on "Go Home and Say Your Mother (that she certainly did a unbelievable job on you)" - the song became one of the hits of the year. Jack has been said by his boss to pass himself off as being in the shipping business (instead of a mere clerk) but word later gets around that he is a shipping magnate. Rather than confess, he says Marilyn he gotta leave on Saturday but they end up eloping which is a bit silly because actually it looks as if she has married him because he is rich. The film reaches it's climax with - what else? - a large golfing tournament. Jack, of course, weighed down by doubts and unhappiness is testing badly. When Marilyn's father realises that he is a star golfer instead of a mere millionaire, he scolds her for not being at the competition to help him. The movie ends with an extraordinary golfing shot and Marilyn on hand with plenty of hugs and kisses.It's unpopularity may well have been due to depression weary audiences being fed up with the frivolous doings of the rich - Hollywood style, but a more plausible reason was probably the public's attitude, at the end of 1930, to film musicals. In 1929 more than 60 musicals were released, in 1930 there were more than 80 - but in 1931 there were only 11. Obviously folks were fed up with musicals but especially the films where no reason was given for a performer to break into song. "Love in the Rough" may have only been a second string MGM movie, but in my opinion the musical numbers were very hummable and quite memorable. Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh may not have been in the same league as Rogers and Hart but they were responsible for some pretty songs including "Cuban Love Song". Dorothy Fields also collaborated with Jerome Kern on the scores for "Roberta" and "Swingtime". Even though Dorothy Jordan's singing and dancing were pleasant at best, you would have thought (judging by some of the films she made in 1929 - 1930) that she was a leading musical star. She and Ramon Novarro were "screen sweethearts", who starred together in three operettas. She was also scheduled to enjoy Honey Hale opposite Fred Astaire in "Flying Down to Rio" but elected to go on her honeymoon instead, thus paving the method for Ginger Rogers.Highly, Highly Recommended.
