Another of the forgotten gems of Crawford's career. This trifle of a play, (which reads badly) is transformed by George Cukor and an all-star cast into a marvelous film. It's Joan Crawford on speed, Freddy March doing his dour drunk, Ruth Hussey, Nigel Bruve, Rita Hayworth, Rose Hobart, Bruce Cabot, and Marjorie Main all thrown into some of the most glamorous settings, costumes, and situations there can can be in an MGM film. Then, the fun starts. Crawford is a marvel as Susan, (who knew anyone but Billie Burke and Rosalind Russell could talk that fast?) who truly believes that only by wrecking the lives of all around her with her judgments and opinions can she help them be truly happy. The funny lines abound; Marjorie Main:"Look at this hallway, 'frighten Dracula." Also, after the argument between Susan and Barrie that sets up their "happy" family summer together, look at the strange sado-masochistic smile on Susan's face after Barrie's threatened to hit her with a chair and she realizes he may not be the sop she thought. See this film if only to see Crawford in a truly champagne comedy.
