TCM must have the best film libraries around. I had never seen this film before then I got a chance to see it. Ann Southern is a funny woman, she played this part perfectly. I wish they made movies like they used to, no computerized special effects, people actually had to act! I would recommend that if you like comedies see this and have a good laugh! There are a few actors in this that I had never heard of before, but I liked them. I looked up a few names and apparently they aren't on this site or they quit acting after this film came out. Ann Southern was a fine actress and I like her in all the movies I have seen her in. This film is a fine example of her talent. Yea, it is an "OLD" film, but it's worth your time to watch this one. Hopefully more people will watch the old movies and get an education in how much better the movies were back in the old days. This was when film making was in it's infancy and they hadn't worked out all the bugs yet. Still, I prefer the old movies over what is considered a good movie by todays standards any time!
