The Love Test
Monthly Film Bulletin: January 1935

     The search for a process to fire-proof celluloid in a chemical research laboratory. A girl is put in charge of the laboratory, and the men assistants, who resent this, plan to make her fall in love with one of them, and as a result to neglect her work.

     The idea of this film is better than its carrying out. The setting is unusual and interesting, but the development of the plot is conventional and obvious, and contains many improbabilities. In spite of this, it is quite good light entertainment for the average filmgoer. Adequate as a piece of screenwork.
