SMH Staff Sydney Morning Herald The object of the producer of No Man Of Her Own has been, apparently, to parade Clark Gable once more in his familiar role of an irresistible lover, for the story which this picture tells falls to justify Its existence on any other grounds. Apr 20, 2020 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader The dialogue slackens after the first half hour, but the stars have some fine comic moments together, and the intimate precode encounters are pretty sexy. Apr 20, 2020 Full Review Variety Staff Variety It is largely the good cast, direction and some of the comedy arising mostly out of the wisecracks that makes No Man of Her Own acceptable film fare. Mar 26, 2009 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills Gable was a fast-rising star whose swagger easily dominates here... Oct 10, 2020 Full Review E. de S. Melcher Washington Star Eventually the picture settles down to being ordinarily "heavy," but it ends on a bright note and its first half is by all odds Gable's best work. Apr 20, 2020 Full Review Tele Staff Daily Telegraph (Australia) Here again is a story of merit presented by artists who know their work. Apr 20, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Steve D A bit sexist but the actors make it worth your time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/05/23 Full Review Audience Member good pre-code rom-com-dram Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Totally unremarkable, but charming nonetheless due to star power. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member The first half of this movie is very good. Clark Gable and Carole Lombard - who would later become one of Hollywood's most glamorous couples - worked together for the first, and sadly only time. Their chemistry is great, as is the supporting cast. Unfortunately, 'No Man of Her Own' reverts from energetic comedy to being a rather conventional romance in the second half, and the ending is rather abrupt. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member The only screen pairing of future real life husband and wife Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. Devastated by her death in a 1942 plane crash, Gable never got over losing her. After being widowed by Lombard (and despite marrying two more times) when Gable died 18 years later, his then pregnant wife/widow, Kay Spreckles, laid him to rest next to Lombard, as he had requested. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Great old movie with the handsome Clark Gable...Very good... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
