Roland Young Good, But It's Not The Same Without Cary Grant
14 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not as good as the first movie, simply called "Topper," mainly because of the absence of Cary Grant. He helped make the first movie a big success, and without him this movie simply wasn't as good. Grant granted permission to re-run of scene of his from the first film to help set up viewers who hadn't seen the original.

Roland Young as "Topper" keeps this film alive and makes it an acceptable sequel. He is very funny at times and without him, the film would have bombed big-time. Young provides most of the entertainment. Constance Bennett is still the slinky, attractive and well-meaning "Marion Kirby" while Billie Burke, as Topper's wife, is stupid, extremely affected and annoying.

I saw a colorized VHS version of this and it was weak. I'm sure the black-and-white DVD version looks better.
