Quick Overview

Starring Miriam Hopkins, Carole Lombard, Frank Morgan, Charles Starrett,

Henry Wadsworth

Directed by Fred C. Newmeyer



Print: black/white

Runtime: 70 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



Previously filmed in 1925, Avery Hopwood's stage play The Best People

was refashioned by Preston Sturges as the Miriam Hopkins vehicle Fast

and Loose in 1930. Hopkins (in her film debut) and Henry Wadsworth are

cast as Marion and Bertie Lenox, the footloose, prodigal offspring of

wealthy, social-climbing Bronson and Carrie Lenox (Frank Morgan and

Winifred Harris). The parents are shocked beyond belief when daughter

Marion falls in love with low-born car mechanic Henry Morgan (Charles

Starrett), while Bertie becomes enamored of down-to-earth showgirl Alice

O'Neil (Carole Lombard). But mom and dad change their minds when it

turns out the Henry and Alice have more common sense than either of

their grown-up kids. This was the film in which Paramount contract starlet

Carol Lombard changed the spelling of her first name to "Carole" — or,

rather, it was changed for her by a careless title-writer.
