LUCY'S MOVIE GUIDE
I’ll Love You Always (1935)
(featuring Lucille Ball as Lucille)
A promising young actress, Nora Clegg (Nancy Carroll) gives up her stage actress career to be the wife of an overconfident young engineer, Carl Brent (George Murphy).
Carl Brent, whose estimation of his worth and ability keeps him from getting a job. He finally acquires a position that will require him to go to Russia for a period of time, while Nora goes back to the stage during his absence.
Carl loses out on the job at the last minute, and rather than tell Nora he has failed again, he steals a roll of money from his prospective employer to buy some things for Nora and go out and have a good time before his departure.
His departure is to jail rather than to Russia and he hides the truth from Nora by having an acquaintance mail his letters from Russia. He then finds out that Nora is pregnant.
