Based on the casting that included Myra Loy and Rosalind Russell, I decided to watch this movie. Some reviews are unkind so I was surprised to find that I enjoyed it as much as I did. And I watch a lot of the thirties and forties movies. My impressions...
It evolved from a comedy into a more serious theme of troubled
relationships. Uneven but still interesting.
I had to check out the date of the movie to verify that it was not
pre-code film because the storyline became more 'adult' as it moved along, until the ending.
I enjoyed Franchot Tone, who I was not that familiar with. Definitely
want to see him in some other films.
Some call the dialog stilted but I found myself listening closely to
it because there was a lot of thought in the words spoken.
Bottom line - there are mixed reviews but I found this film to be well worth the time spent.
