Producer Howard R. Hughes intended to use Age for Love to prove that his current flame, silent-film leading lady Billie Dove, would be a smash hit in talkies. Beautiful Dove plays a working girl who consents to marry Charles Starrett, on the condition that she not be expected to bear children. When Starrett gets the urge to be a daddy, he divorces Dove and marries another. Things aright themselves at the end, while Edward Everett Horton supplies much-needed comedy relief along the way. Despite the scriptwriting talents of Robert E. Sherwood, Ernest Pascal and director Frank Lloyd, Age for Love failed to rescue the flagging career of Billie Dove.
