The Devil to Pay (1931)

with Loretta YoungColman's Willie Leeland is a playboy in every sense of the word - devoted to the pursuit of beautiful women and all the comforts of life.

Upon his return to London after escapades in East Africa, Willie takes up with his girlfriend (an early Myrna Loy appearance) and continues to live off of his wealthy father.

However, his meeting with socialite Dorothy Hope (a 17-year-old Loretta Young) begins to change his outlook on life, and he soon proves to be not so much of a gigolo after all.

The film was well-received upon its release, and described as "charming, infectious, and delightful."
