When You're in Love is a 1937 American musical film directed by Robert Riskin and Harry Lachman, who was not credited, and starring Grace Moore and Cary Grant. Moore sings "Minnie the Moocher" and the Ernesto Lecuona classic Cuban song "Siboney". Two of the other songs in the film – "Our Song" and "The Whistling Boy" – are by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields.
The film was briefly released on VHS tape during the 1980s but has never been officially released on DVD. On May 6, 2016 the getTV channel featured the broadcast premiere of a newly restored print of the film. Film critic Thomas Gladysz described it as "one of those 'old movies' few people have heard of, and even fewer have seen. Nevertheless, it is a charming and entertaining film deserving a wider audience."
Jimmy Hudson (Cary Grant) is a vagabond American artist in Mexico who can't pay his hotel bill. Louise Fuller (Grace Moore) is an acclaimed classical singer recently expelled from the U.S. to Mexico on an expired visa, and desperate to get back in. She hires Hudson to marry her so that she can regain entry to the United States in time to give a benefit performance, stipulating that he must divorce her within six months to receive his final payment. Hudson agrees only because he sees something special in her, but thinks she has lost her way both personally and artistically in fame, her entourage, and her career. Once they have returned to the country and gone their separate ways, Hudson begins pursuing her, hoping to bridge their differences by drawing her from her own gilded world into his, and thus to turn their sham marriage into something real.
