One Rainy Afternoon

1936

PG CC
Available on Prime
3.5 out of 5 stars (13) IMDb 6.2/10

French actor Phillipe Martin (Lederer) enters a darkened movie theater to rendezvous with his married lover, Yvonne. However, Phillipe ends up mistakenly kissing a complete stranger, young and innocent Monique Pelerin (Lupino). The incident causes a furious media scandal, landing Phillipe in a zany screwball court trial, fighting against the Purity League as "The Kissing Monster." To protect Yvonne, Phillipe lies and states that he was overcome with Monique's beauty and could not resist kissing her, due to his romantic French nature. The charges are dropped, and Phillipe becomes an overnight celebrity and and the play he stars in a success. His testimony in court intrigues Monique, and leads to a burgeoning romance between Monique and Phillipe.

Ida Lupino was a powerhouse. Actor, producer and director; one of the first female member of the Director Guild of America. This fine movie is from very early in her American career. Originally from England, she'd only been in America a couple of years when she made this film. She's quite sweet in this romantic comedy; unlike the hard-bitten broads she would play in later film-noir movies.

Ida Lupino was always enjoyable to watch in her various roles, but she was never as sweet and adorable as she was in "One Rainy Afternoon." Great leading and supporting actors, and a nice story. And if you don't fall in love with Ida Lupino after watching this little gem of a flick, you must have a heart of stone.

I love funny old movies, and this is one that I enjoy seeing again and again. Please note - because it came from an old reel, the sound and picture quality aren't perfect. In fact, some scenes are harder to hear or see than others. But, it is still enjoyable, nonetheless!

A perfect or even good copy of this screwball gem doesn't exist. My copy came from Oldies.com and it's bearable. Still, one should not overlook the movie itself because it's hilarious and inspired. Warner Brothers sent many of its stable of zanies into the film along with charming and funny Frances Lederer and young, beautiful Ida Lupino. Donald Meek and Hugh Herbert almost steal the show. Don't miss this one.

BEWARE! This is another way-below-par release from ALPHA. You'd be better off saving your cash and watching it on YOUTUBE!
