Reviews of the I Live My LifeMGM came up with a very predictable formula for Joan Crawford in the 1930s. Despite the films' limitations, casting her as a poor girl worked well in the box office. In most of these films, she wanted to marry a rich man and live a life of leisure, but regardless of her aims, she became known for playing her earthy ladies from working-class roots. Despite this, the studio worked against type and cast her as a rather shallow rich lady in I LIVE MY LIFE--a role that seemed ill-suited to her. On top of that, the film really didn't seem well written, as the characters often act in ways that make little sense.
The film begins with Crawford and her clan on a yacht in the Greek Isles. Crawford goes to shore and meets an archaeologist (Brian Aherne) and they hit it off pretty well. However, he says something about his prejudices against rich and shallow folks (that's her in spades), so she lies and tells him she's a secretary--not a pampered 'princess'. However, after spending all this time with him, she just leaves--without telling him who she really is, as she knows the relationship can't work.
Later, after she never answered any of his letters to her in America, Aherne comes to the States to look for her. He soon finds out that she is NOT who she says she was, so he digs deeper and eventually finds her in her mansion. They argue a lot and split. Then, when he's giving a lecture in a nearby museum, she arrives--to tell him how much she doesn't love him. Naturally, this is a giant cliché and soon they begin snogging (for those not acquainted with 'British', this is KISSING). Soon, they are preparing for a wedding(!?).
In the meantime, Crawford's father (Frank Morgan) finds out his investments have gone bust and the family is in jeopardy of losing all their stuff so Crawford knows she can't marry Aherne but must marry a rich guy. Now considering that this film was made during the Depression, the idea of Morgan or Crawford having to get a real job doesn't seem THAT awful. It was hard to care about some flibbertigibbet who has to vacate their mansion when the average American was pondering whether or not cat is the other white meat! So worrying about whether this brood can keep their wealth seems rather unimportant.
So, will Crawford marry Aherne or some other dude? Well, instead, she has the idea of having Aherne suck up to her grandmother--maybe she will give them the money they 'need' to bail out the family. So, in other words, she wants Aherne to become a man-whore. And, once he gets a job from her where he gets to sit around and do nothing and collect a HUGE salary, the audience is expected to feel sorry for him! As for all this nonsense, does anyone care? Well, as for me, I didn't and had a hard time following this film to the end--especially since late in the film Crawford showed herself to be a total brat. In one scene, she destroys thousands of dollars worth of things around the house and a designer dress!! Poor little pampered princess!
I recommend this film only for completists who insist on seeing all of Crawford's films--otherwise, skip it. It's a sad shadow of her better films of the era. A sad misfire with an uninvolving plot and rather unlikable characters--aside from the crusty grandmother. This, by the way, is quite a waste as the film did have a great supporting cast consisting of Frank Morgan, Arthur Treacher, Eric Blore and Aline MacMahon.
