Let's say this right off: Mary Boland is in this! Mary Boland could liven up virtually any movie. Here she is meant to be an annoying mother-in-law-to-be. We aren't annoyed by her, though. She's too delightful.
Probably best remembered for her standout performance in "The Women," Boland could also play real, beloved characters, as in "Pride and Prejudice." Local TV used to show "Ruggles of Red Gap" all the time, but it has disappeared. Who can ever forget her pretentious American in France, speaking of the "HOTE-a-MOHN-day"? Burgess Meredith is in it also. He had a great deal of talent, which I have seen for the most part wasted in unimaginative scripts. He was magnificent, though, in "Of Mice and Men." And Ann Sothern. That sly, witty, beautiful comedienne! She isn't cast ideally either, playing a teenager with stars in her eyes (at least at the movie's start.) This isn't going to hit many best-lists. But the stars make it well worth watching.
