    Comments about God's Gift to Women:

    Frank Fay, Barbara Stanwyck's first husband, the original Elwood P. Dowd and one of the entertainment worlds most disliked men, pretty much ended his film career with this turkey. He has neither charm nor good looks, and is pretty hammy throughout. His character, a variation on Eddie Cantor's hypochondriac in WHOOPEE, pales by comparison. I've always wondered what his appeal was. I still do!

    Comments about God's Gift to Women:

    The movie show is age. the print is really in poor shape and comes with all kind of damage: specking, marks,vertical lines, bad frames...
    The audio track is also very damaged: "very noisy".

      Comments about God's Gift to Women:

      "If you want to live, you must follow the tranquil existence of an oyster." So advises Frank ("Toto") Fay's doctor in "God's Gift to Women". But this doctor isn't Toto's family physician, only one sent by a father who doesn't trust his daughter around God's Gift. As this movie opens with a scene inside a lively Paris nightclub, we see why the father is concerned. This farce seems to me more silly than funny (with a good pre-code sight gag near the beginning), and moves along well enough during its 72 minutes. Director Michael Curtiz does as well as he can with the material, and perky St. Louis sweetie Laura LaPlante is at home here. All of the women, though, play second fiddle to Frank Fay, who always seems slightly intoxicated throughout. I wanted to see more of Joan Blondell and of course Louise Brooks, but they and Yola d'Avril do liven up the bedroom farce section. Margaret Livingston, Alan Mowbray, and Charles Judels have their few moments to shine. Whenever someone mentioned Toto, I thought of Sig Arno and Mary Astor in "The Palm Beach Story". This Gift has more modest rewards, but I still expect that you will enjoy this trifle.
