365 Movies: Privates Lives Review

Private Lives stars Norma Shearer, Robert Montgomery, Reginald Denny, and Una Merkel in this 1931 film. While separated from one another, and on honeymoon's with their new spouses, Mandy(Shearer) and Elyot(Montgomery) rekindle their romance, and decide to run off together. Their new spouses(Denny and Merkel) are heartbroken, and are determined to get them back, but they end up matching better than expected. While filled with wit and charm, the film lacked chemistry throughout. While in the beginning, Robert and Norma had the chemistry, it fizzled after a bit. The relationship between the two is so hot and cold, that somehow they click.
