Pleasant little screwball comedy...nice pairing of Montgomery and Loy...
30 January 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I was never a big fan of ROBERT MONTGOMERY but have to admit he acquits himself very well in this light romantic comedy opposite the very adroit MYRNA LOY, who could play either comedy or drama with equal finesse. The two of them hold this little tale together--and since the camera is on them most of the time, it's not really that difficult to do.

The film might more aptly be titled "Cabin Fever" because once Loy's plane crashes (with would-be husband Reginald Owen aboard), she spends most of the movie cabin bound with lonely wireless operator Montgomery in the wilds of Labrador. All of it has a stage-bound look and is obviously photographed on the MGM sound stages with artificial snow and ice for a few background shots. The flimsy tale has Montgomery falling head over heels in love with the stranded Loy, who at first resists his charm but soon becomes undecided about being Reginald Owen's fiancé.

It's so simple and yet it plays extremely well because of some bright dialog and the effortless ease with which Montgomery and Loy play screwball comedy. Not as fortunate is REGINALD OWEN, given to the kind of mugging and overplaying that usually sinks a film like this. But it's the skillful emoting of the two stars that saves the day.

A pleasant trifle, typical of '30s film fare in this realm.

Trivia note: Watch for a glimpse of handsome young DENNIS MORGAN as a band singer in a nightclub scene in an uncredited bit role.
