The thought of Robert Young in a madcap comedy is not a pleasant one. His cheerful zaniness always seems forced. Here he is saddled with a deadly plot. Worse, he is asked to play against a real cipher as a leading lady: Evelyn Venable is haunting as Gracia in "Death Takes A Holiday." She would have been better off had she stayed with solemn roles like this, because she appears to have no sense of comedy. She drags through this. She doesn't look pretty, either, though she looks lovely in the elegant "Death Takes A Holiday." The running joke in this is that Young likes gumdrops and Venable's fiancé doesn't. She likes them too. They are both welcome to them..
