Audience Reviews for The Love Trap
Pleasant concoction is a story as old as the hills of a family of snobs thinking the true blue girl their son marries on a whim is a no good golddigger until proven wrong. A bit of an odd viewing experience since half way through the film it switches from silent to sound but Wyler's sure handed direction keeps it from being too jarring. It is interesting how in the silent portion the tone is set by shadows and the mood of a scene but after the dialogue becomes the agent of explanation. It must have been a disconcerting balancing act for the actors involved but they handle it pretty well.
I have a feeling this could have been a good movie, but it just isn't. It's okay, but still an average romantic comedy drama type movie.
