    This movie certainly deserves a place in the 'official' roster of Hollywood rom-com, and Fredric March deserves more recognition as one of the sexiest leading men of the 1930s. (Frank Morgan also puts in an early iteration of a type that he would make immortal: the man who cannot impress no matter how much power he wields.)

  2. Log Lady's rating of the film Laughter

  4. orangey's rating of the film Laughter

  5. Mango's rating of the film Laughter
