Overview

Four courageous college graduates become heroes when they successfully complete a 15-hour coast-to-coast plane flight. Alas, things don't go so well for the foursome when they return to earth to seek out employment. Chris Thring Charles Farrell has a particularly rough time of it, but his sweetheart Catherine Furness Janet Gaynor remains faithful through thick and thin. Trouble brews in the form of Chris and Catherine's mutual friends Mack McGowan James Dunn and Madge Rountree Ginger Rogers: Catherine thinks Chris is in love with Madge, while Mack falls in love with Chris? and on and on it goes. Shirley Temple shows up in the early scenes as a plane passenger, while that grand old trouper Gustav von Seyfertitz sheds his usual villainous image as the film's avuncular last-minute problem-solver. Change of Heart is based on a novel by Kathleen Norris.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
The team of Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell went out with a whisper rather than a bang, truth be told. The top romantic pairing of the late silent era was showing quite a bit of strain by 1934 and Change of Heart proved the team's farewell. As a drama, the film isn't much; four youngsters (or supposed youngsters, at least) travel from Los Angeles to Gotham by air, squabble a bit, and make up. Gaynor and Farrell are pleasant enough, but Change of Heart truly belongs to the secondary team of James Dunn and Ginger Rogers, who stubbornly refuse to take themselves serious. The cross-country plane trip is actually the film's most interesting aspect, what with rare aerial footage of Los Angeles and Manhattan filmed in late 1933.
