WARNING! 2nd movie is actually "Reaching For the Moon"

(3 out of 5 stars)
"Due to error by Family Value the second movie here is actually "Reaching For the Moon" (1930) with Douglas Fairbanks of Robin hood fame. One of only 5 talkies he did at the pinacle of his career. Its actually the better of the 2 movies and the actual transfer runs 6 minutes longer than the typical 65 minutes! There are no beginning titles though! The plot is outstanding: Wall Street wizard, Larry Day (Fairbanks), is a financial genius but an incompetent with women. Entranced with a beautiful young woman, he takes lessons from his valet on the subject of womanizing, then follows her on an ocean voyage, where cocktails, laced with a "love potion," work their magic. He then loses his fortune in the market crash, and feels he has also lost his girl. The young lady, however, is not blind to the fine young man inside the awkward exterior."
