A nice surprise
4 February 2007 | by (LA CA) – See all my reviews

As a wife's (Gloria Stuart) career goes up and up, her husband's (Lanny Ross) goes down, down, but when he's accused of murder she comes to his defense. Interesting acknowledgment, for 1938, that a woman can in fact have a successful career -- and much a healthier viewpoint than that of Woman of the Year four years later, for instance -- but the authenticity is compromised by Lanny Ross's details: he's an ex-halfback who leaves his architecture firm to become a nightclub crooner. Yeah, right, there are lots of those. Nice work from Gloria Stuart -- she has an enjoyable scene in which she wins a case through a bit of chicanery -- and the Oscar-nominated tune is pleasant.
