GIRLS' DORMITORY - CAFE METROPOLE - 1937 - LORETTA YOUNG - DOUBLE FEATURE - DVD
Cafe Metropole (1937). So early in Power's career that he isn't even top billed at this point. Power plays a young American in Paris who is in debt to a nightclub owner (Adolphe Menjou). He impersonates a Russian prince so he can woo wealthy Laura Ridgeway (Loretta Young), get his hands on her money, and repay Menjou. A good but rarely seen comedy.
Girls' Dormitory (1936) This movie is so early in Power's career that he is buried in the credits. This really isn't his film at all, but it is still above average. This is a melodrama in which a teacher in a girls' school (Herbert Marshall) is loved both by a colleague (Ruth Chatterton) and by a student (Simone Simon).
