Sothern shines in trite comedy
23 May 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Ann Sothern plays an heiress who returns from a European trip to discover that her wealthy father has died and left her with enormous debts. She's determined to get a job to pay them off, and through a series of somewhat contrived circumstances winds up working as a secretary for coffee magnate Gene Raymond. The script is predictable-- you KNOW they're going to wind up together after a series of misunderstandings separates them--and Raymond, as another reviewer has noted, is as stiff as a board, but the supporting cast, especially Billy Gilbert and Victor Moore, is good. It's Sothern's show, however, and she's more than up to it. She's funny, perky, sexy and has great comic timing, which Raymond utterly lacks (she tries to connect with him, but despite her best efforts there's no chemistry there whatsoever).

All in all, it's an inconsequential comedy that owes whatever success it may have had to the extraordinary talents of Ann Sothern. It's worth a watch for that, but not much else.
