This is a fairly good movie with some good actors but a weak story line.
The actress who played the part of "Ada" in this movie was the Broadway singer/dancer/actress Helen Shipman and not Helena Shipman as noted in the Cast of Characters list. Helena Shipman, a native of the State of Washington, was the mother of actor Brian Keith whose father was Robert Keith (actor). Helen Shipman was from Pennsylvania and married Edward J. Pawley of Broadway/movie/radio fame. She appeared in at least 14 known movies such as: House Across The Bay w/George Raft, San Francisco w/ Clark Gable, Small Town Girl w/ Robert Taylor, Wife Vs. Secretary w/ Clark Gable, Men Without Names w/ Fred MacMurray, Naughty Marietta w/ Jeanette MacDonald, and The Great Power w/ Hershel Mavall. Helen Shipman was best known for her singing and dancing in Broadway musicals and musical comedies such as Oh Boy!, Lady In Ermine, and Irene. She was discovered by the great Broadway producer, Florenz Seigfeld. Helen Shipman died on April 13, 1984 in Virginia at the age of 85.
