Storyline

Despite being made for each other, Helen and Bob go through the usual complications of a film like this before ending up together in the final reel. Written by P. Silvestro

Fun to see Vincent Price before he was Vincent Price; Mischa Auer a hoot
29 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fun comedy. A bit labored in parts, but enjoyable. Mischa Auer as a Russian chef who talks to his spirit guide and threatens at a crisis moment to return to his job at the Sara Goode Waffle Shop is a hoot. Constance Bennett is rather bland and forgettable, but it's fun to see Vincent Price six years before the classic "Laura". He looks much you would expect a young Vincent Price to look, but he sounds quite different. It's before he started doing the "Mid-Atlantic" accent that many actors affected in the 1930s and 1940s. Unfortunately, the great Helen Broderick isn't given enough to do in this film and the bland Constance Bennett is given too much.
