Stella 'Stell' Hallam:
[Stella turns around to see that Victor has followed her out into the rain]
Oh, Vicky. I'm afraid you'll have to get me a taxi.
What for? I thought you liked to walk in the rain. I do.
[she takes his arm, and they walk off together in the pouring rain]

Superb cast helps to offset the corny melodrama...
Well-acted soaper about a young married couple who are nearly torn apart by the husband's vulgar, meddlesome family. Terrific cast, including Helen Hayes, Robert Montgomery, Henry Travers, and the glorious Margaret Hamilton, do a fine service to Rose Franken's play, adapted by no less a script-whiz than Herman J. Mankiewicz (with uncredited help from yet another auteur, Donald Ogden Stewart). The comedic throw-away bits work best, however the lapses into knuckle-biting melodrama are dated and detract overall. Still, the film's initial half-hour is quite strong, and Hamilton is a hoot as Montgomery's spinster sister. ** from ****
