Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Careless Age was based on Diversion, a play by John Van Druten. Douglas Fairbanks Jr. plays Wyn, a headstrong young British aristocrat whose escapades cause no end of headaches for his father Sir John (Holmes Herbert). Although married to Muriel (Loretta Young), Wyn begins courting a gold-digging musical comedy actress named Ray (Carmel Myers). But when our hero is falsely accused of murder, Muriel stands nobly by his side. The film suffers from the usual early-talkie deficiencies, but the performances -- especially from the younger members of the cast -- are vibrant and enthusiastic.
