Carole Lombard made probably just as many or more silent movies and shorts as she did talkies, but unfortunately, the hilarity in Matchmaking Mama has nothing to do with her role. This short subject features Lombard as a socialite with an eye for men, any men. Her mother Daphne Pollard has her sights set on Larry Matty Kemp as a suitable husband for daughter Phyllis, who is also cast in a play that requires he kiss the young woman.
The man is entranced by her legs, but being a very modest girl, Sally scurries about trying to figure out how to put the pan down without further exposing herself. This leads Sally to cast the man off and both parties are terribly unhappy. Pollard even without sound plays an intolerable small woman with the fury of someone twice her size.
We can see easily from her interactions with others how dominant she is, and the witty dialogue of the intertitles does wonders for this comedy. The story is adorable and romantic; I only regret Lombard was not featured more prominently. Her glamorous side was certainly played up over her comedic possibilities.
Matchmaking Mama also features a scene photographed in color. Technicolor made possible a limited dance routine scene that features a bunch of young women in green and red hues.
