Lambert Hillyer directed his 161st movie in 1949. He then retired. A few years later, however, he surfaced on TV a medium for which he was ideally suited. He could shoot fast and competently but had little imagination. "Should a Girl Marry?" is a cut below his usual standard. The players enunciate their lines audibly and with reasonable felicity, but that's about all you can say. The story is nothing much and has little action. The movie was obviously produced on a skinflint budget. As said, the acting does not impress either, although everyone says their lines so clearly that you can hear every superfluous word which is something you can't say about many of today's crop of motion picture thespians. Available on a reasonably good Alpha DVD.
