Jimmy Conlin (Ernest) and Dick Paxton (Messenger Boy) are in studio records/casting call lists for their roles, but they are not seen in this movie. Most of the men and women at the railroad station listed in the cast are shown in longshot and are not recognizable, but are assumed to be there. See more »
When Jeff Thompson appears he is holding some neck ties in his left hand as he is talking to a member of the ship's crew. When he turns around in the next shot he is seen placing an oil painting down with several others. The neck ties disappeared and in their place a painting materialized. See more »
I don't usually bother to make a "user review" to movies because others do it so much better than me. However, I saw that there were only two reviews here, and no substantial external reviews and that the film got a (high) 6.8 vote. Therefore, I felt it was my civic duty to warn the viewing public.
I am a big fan of Myrna Loy and Melvyn Douglas. I saw the 3 out of 4 star rating in my TV listing. The plot seemed liked a delightful screwball comedy -- Myrna Loy is a powerful head of a magazine who pretends to be married for business and social reasons. I was all geared up to enjoy the movie. It started out OK, as do most movies, but it turned out to be so wordy, boring, action-less, painful and lengthy, that I deserve an award for seeing it to the end. (That a black actor --the train porter who studied law via a correspondence course-- had an important, decent role at the end in this 1940 movie was quite commendable.)
