Hold That Kiss is a cute story cutely played by the irresistably cute Maureen O'Sullivan. She plays working girl June Evans, who meets handsome Tommy Bradford (Dennis O'Keefe) at a society wedding. June assumes that Tommy is wealthy, and Tommy assumes same about June. Both keep up the artifice throughout their courtship until the inevitable revelation, remonstration and reconciliation. Most MGM programmers of the 1930s included at least on "offbeat" comedy setpiece, and this one is no exception: After attending a dog show, June is obliged to go home with a huge, slobbering Saint Bernard (one wonders whether Maureen O'Sullivan enjoyed the company of the dog any more than she did the companionship of Cheeta in the "Tarzan" pictures). Stealing every scene he's in is Mickey Rooney as June's obsteperous kid brother.
