Better than you'd think
2 August 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

While Carole Lombard would perfect the dizzy-socialite-gets-social-conscience shtick four years later in "My Man Godfrey," the sadly under-appreciated Constance Bennett does the genre fine in this film. She's matched with a surprisingly effective Neil Hamilton, probably best known to the world as Police Commissioner Gordon, from the "Batman" television series. Both give natural and believable (within the scope of the story) performances.

The payoff verdict will leave you unconvinced (and modern trial lawyers convulsed with laughter), but on the whole the movie is worth watching. Watch for it on Turner Classic Movies.
