I had rather high hopes when I learned this film had a 1939 release and the first 10 minutes or so were quite entertaining. I thought I was in for a pleasant comedy, but the laughs ended early. Everything went downhill at about the midway point, and never recovered. Florence Rice was capable enough in her role, and of course Una Merkel is always a delight, but they weren't enough to carry the weak script and ham-handed situations. It was nice to see Tom Neal in a small part, and Buddy Ebsen as well, and Jessie Ralph was good in her role as the head nurse who doesn't take any guff from anyone. Overall, though, I'd say you can skip this one.
