Tyrone Power makes his living writing about the foibles of the idle rich, until he encounters a young heiress who decides to have some fun at the reporters expense. Their battle to embarrass one another spills out into high society in this screwball 1930s comedy.
Slightly reminiscent of Frank Capra's PLATINUM BLONDE (31), this screwball comedy features those two stalwarts of 1930s comedies: The brash reporter and the giddy heiress. Tyrone Power is the reporter, who makes his living writing about the foibles of the idle rich. His special target is heiress Loretta Young, the daughter of an influential financier (Dudley Digges). Young gets even by announcing her engagement to Power; now it's his turn to have his every movement scrutinized by the Public. Both reporter and heiress connive to embarrass one another, but (as expected) they're headed for the altar at fadeout time. LOVE IS NEWS was remade in 1949 as THAT WONDERFUL URGE, with Tyrone Power reprising his role and Gene Tierney in the Loretta Young part.
