Three Stars Shine In This Light Comedy
17 June 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews



An ordinary businessman is appalled when his no-talent wife becomes infatuated with amateur theatrics, propelling Mr. DOUBTING THOMAS into a bizarre world populated by stage-struck eccentrics.

Will Rogers is perfectly cast as the perplexed husband with the wry, homespun humor, bursting balloons of pomposity at every turn. His was a unique personality - always a joy to watch. His dialogue gives him ample opportunity to charm the audience & show once again why he was one of Hollywood's - and America's - favorite personalities.

Will is given two female co-stars worthy of him. Billie Burke, as his wife, is her usual wonderful, flighty self, perfectly playing one of the air head parts she practically patented. Monumental Alison Skipworth, formidable as the play's directress, all but steals the entire picture in her hilarious role. It is a shame this splendid actress is almost forgotten today.

It's also a pity that young Frank Albertson, as Will's son, is given no chance to display his considerable musical comedy talent. The rest of the cast - Gail Patrick, Sterling Holloway, Johnny Arthur, John Qualen - are all given moments to shine.
