One of the more popular movie-review paperbacks sums up Paramount's
Isn't it Romantic? with a terse "No." There's actually more to the film than
that, but not much. Set in Indiana in the 1890s, the story revolves around
an die hard Confederate soldier named Major Euclid Cameron (Roland
Culver), who refuses to acknowledge that the South lost the Civil War.
Cameron also regards himself as an aristocrat who will never sully his
hands with work, which is why he and his family are flat broke. It is up to
the Major's three pretty daughters-Candy (Veronica Lake), Susie (Mona
Freeman) and Rose (Mary Hatcher)-to make ends meet financially, even if
it means marrying for money rather than love. Pearl Bailey transcends the
stereotypical role of the Cameron's housekeeper Abigail with her soulful
renditions of such forgettable tunes as "I Shoulda Quit When I Was
Ahead" (a bit of advice that could have profited the film's producers!)
