Real cool obscure 1938 Universal all-star comedy-drama
I'm sooooooo glad that it's finally available on DVD (from Alpha...mediocre quality, but absolutely worthwhile buying).
This is a John Stahl directed Universal film starring Adolphe Menjou, Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy, George Murphy, the young Ann Sheridan, as well as two great actresses fresh from starring in "Stage Door", Andrea Leeds and Eve Arden.
Andrea Leeds is really the star of this film....and she's really good. It's a shame her career didn't really pan out.
There's a good dramatic story and plenty of comedy from Bergen and Arden.
If you love good movies from the 1930's, this one's for you.
