Dapper "polite" comedian Raymond Griffith starred in this so-so vehicle. Griffith is cast as French Alfred Sava-Goiu, who, after being dumped by his sweetheart, philosophically decides to end it all by jumping into the Seine. Instead, he lands in a passing boat owned by the Countess Elvire (Vera Voronina). Falling in love with his savior, Alfred returns the compliment by rescuing the Countess from a precipitous waterfall. The Countess' lover Prince Alado (William Powell) resents Alfred's presence and challenges our hero to a duel. Wriggling out of this predicament, Alfred "kidnaps" his far-from-resistant sweetheart and escapes with her in a balloon -- which, worse luck, turns out to be a war-games target. Once again, however, Alfred's luck holds out, and he and the Countess manage to make it to the altar. Like most of Raymond Griffith's starring films, A Time to Love has apparently long since vanished.
