Delightful comedy with Swanson at her peak.
10 September 2001 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

We are fortunate indeed that Milestone Films have restored this to video. It is a delightful comedy with Swanson in top form as a light comedienne and with Melvyn Douglas matching her all the way. If there had been more than three Best Actress Oscar nominees that year, Ms. Swanson might have been given a nomination for her work here. This is a "star turn" in every sense of the word. She embellishes the role with her personality, enfolds it and gives a superb performance. The 35 mm nitrate negative from which the video is struck is in "perfect condition" - almost as if it had been made yesterday. The script is a direct transfer from the play to film concerning an "unfeeling" diva who attempts to put a little zip in her life by organizing herself to have an affair. Mistaken identities and some naughty double entendres add to the fun. A film one leaves glowing with a smile on one's face. Do seek it out.
