When i started to watch this film it started to feel suspiciously like "It Happened One Night".The interesting thing is that this film was released just 6 weeks before "IHON.So i wonder who stole what from whom.Anyway whereas IHOO is still funny and famous this film is justly forgotten.It seems to have had the fingerprints of many writers on it,6 are credited ,but how many more actually worked on it i wonder.It starts out OK enlivened by Healy and the 3 stooges.However once they disappear and the dramatic plot takes over this film goes into freefall.It is the epitome of poor writing and plot development and to say it is unbelievable and formulaic is just to understate the case.Even Nat Pendleton with his overacting in the early part of the film was preferable to the miscast Robert Montgomery and the dreadful tear jerking 4 hankie stuff at the conclusion.My best advice is that if you are determined to watch this film then turn it off when Healy and the Stooges leave.Then you will feel that you have seen a reasonable film.
