Goofs

When Dick and Marion first meet at the gas station she is by the rear left fender of his car, talking to the attendant on the other side, yet when Dick adjusts the rear view mirror we see Marion's full face instead of a left profile. Then Marion turns her back on the mirror, but when Dick adjusts it downward, we see the front of Marion's feet and legs instead of the back. Only when the camera backs off does Marion turn around and face Dick and the mirror. See more »

Pretty Good Story; Interesting Role For Wayne
21 June 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This would be worth watching if for no other reason than to watch John Wayne in a romantic comedy, and it's a decent movie in its own right. While its not as funny or as moving as the best films of this type, the story is good and is usually at least mildly amusing.

Wayne plays the carefree son of a rich man. His Father disapproves of him and his lifestyle, and after giving him one last chance, rejects him and the woman he has married (Evalyn Knapp). His wife decides to take matters into her own hands, with a creative scheme intended to bring the cold-hearted father to his senses. It's a fairly interesting scenario, and most of the possibilities are realized. The acting is generally good, and Wayne does well in a role much different from those he would later become famous for.

Wayne's fans should enjoy seeing how he performs in this atypical role, and fans of old-fashioned romantic comedies should also find this worth a look.
