Kay Francis is excellent in this 1938 comedy with a dramatic streak. She plays a woman whose husband (Pat O'Brien) has a secret (not revealed here) at the office. She tries to help out by landing a difficult advertising account and smashing her marriage. He goes on a round-the-world trip while she becomes a successful business woman. Not as grim as the plot sounds. This is a zippy Warners comedy with nice performances all round. Francis and O'Brien are lively and it's a shame they were so underrated; both of them zing the comedy lines like true pros, but when the action turns dramatic they are equally as good. Thurston Hall is hilarious as the philandering father, and Joyce Compton, Grant Mitchell, Sarah Edwards, Georgia Caine, Ralph Forbes, Gordon Oliver, Josephine Whittell, Cecil Cunningham, and Melville Cooper are all fun. And Renie Riano and May Boley have a nice scene as hotel maids. Good film.
