The Amazing Adventure is a comedy adventure film from 1936 directed by Alfred Zeisler and starring Cary Grant, Mary Brian and Peter Gawthorne. The movie tells the story of a young and wealthy bachelor named Ernest Bliss (Cary Grant) who feels bored and unhappy with his routine life of luxury and is looking for a new adventure. Ernest's life changes when he discovers a young woman hiding under his car. She is Joan (Mary Brian), a young and impoverished woman who has been fired and has nowhere to go. Ernest decides to take her in and help her out, which leads to a set of circumstances that take them both on an adventure they never expected.

Ernest, who is known for being a womanizer and a playboy, is challenged by his uncle in a bet of £50,000 to live without money, and to keep the same job, and woman, for a year. Ernest accepts the challenge and begins his adventure. Along the way, he meets several challenges, including going bankrupt, getting involved in a police chase, and trying to get Joan's job back.

Throughout his journey, Ernest learns the value of hard work and the dignity of earning his own money. He also realizes that there is more to life than just wealth and luxury, and that having meaningful relationships is what truly brings happiness.

Cary Grant delivers a stellar performance, with his usual charm and charisma, carrying the film with his wit and humor. Mary Brian shines, playing the role of the kind-hearted and ambitious Joan, who supports Ernest throughout his adventure.

The film also features a great supporting cast, including Peter Gawthorne, who plays the eccentric uncle, and Henry Kendall, who plays the rival suitor to Joan, adding layers of complexity to the story.

The Amazing Adventure is a lighthearted and enjoyable film that combines comedy, romance and adventure, offering commentary on the social and economic issues of the time. Its message of the value of hard work and the importance of meaningful relationships is as relevant today as it was in 1936, making this a classic film that should not be missed.

The Amazing Adventure is a 1936 romance movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 20 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.3.
