Quotes

Mrs. Norwood: Don't ring, darling, you might wake the servants. You know, I practically adjust my life to suit theirs. But I don't mind, really, it's part of the New Plan or New Deal, whatever you call it, and I, I don't mind, it keeps me young and patriotic.

Pure entertainment
20 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Take a story of no significance, load it with events of dubious credibility...and what do you have? If you also manage to include roles that are ideal for Clark Gable, Constance Bennett and Billie Burke, and if you find these players at the top of their form, and bring this mix alive with a crackling script by Herman Mankiewicz, the significance and credibility of it all are distinctly secondary. The characters talk fast, think fast, and move fast. This type of picture was done often in the 30s: part screwball, part melodrama, part love story (with sharp edges). When it worked - as it surely does here - you would be royally entertained. Enjoy.
