charming Joel McCrae/Miriam Hopkins comedy - fast-paced and witty
Not sure why the previous reviewers here didn't like this charming Joel McCrae / Miriam Hopikins comedy. The dialog was tight, witty and clever. I usually don't like slapstick comedies, but the 'slapstick' parts in this were just the right amount to make it work perfectly. Miriam Hopkins was excellent in this - very Carole Lombard-like - with rapid-fire wit, yes, a little over-the-top, but it worked! Joel McCrae was superb and the chemistry between the two really worked. The story may not have been the most original, even for 1937, but it held my attention from start to finish. Very satisfying and highly recommended. Definitely worth seeing, especially if you're fans of either star.
