one of films interesting only for cast. the story is a chain of conventions , the dialogs - unrealistic and entire story seems be an improvisation. the good part -the performance of Carole Lombard. the bad part - the end and Clark Gable in a role who uses to much the stereotypes. a movie interesting for the old flavor, for the romance - not remarkable but nice -, for few scenes - parts of the period sensitivity and, sure, for the atmosphere of a kind of fairy tale. far to be bad, it is confuse. its subject is absent, the bad good guy is fake but the desire of team to do a nice comedy is meritorious. against, maybe, the result.
