is not her fault. The script is second-rate and although she and Clark Gable try hard to inject some life into this film, they can't do it. Lots of possibilities for snappy lines as in other Davies vehicles ("Cain and Mabel," "Ever Since Eve," "Page Miss Glory," etc.) but the scripters settle on the dull and boring aspects of Davies (a circus star) trying to become a goody-two-shoes to please Gable (a minister). Even supporting stars like C. Aubrey Smith and Maude Eburne don't get much to do. Watch for a young Ray Milland in the church scenes. One compensation: Davies looks great!
