Break of Hearts was Katharine Hepburn‘s 7th film.
Plot: Franz Roberti (Charles Boyer), a world famous composer & womanizer, falls in love with Constance Dane (Hepburn), an aspiring composer. They are soon married and travel all over Europe on their honeymoon. On their return to New York, Franz gets sucked back into going to dinner with his old friends and lies to his wife about it. She finds out and leaves him. Franz is devastated and begins to drink. It looks like his career is over for good but Franz & Constance are able to patch things up and they get back together.
This was a simple little love story. Although not one of my favorites it was a good film. It is interesting to note that John Beal (who played the Little Minister in the movie “The Little Minister”) played Franz’s best friend and tried to marry Constance when they where seperated. This film was released on DVD through the Warner Archive Collection.
