Dull, plodding romantic comedy of mismatched couple
This is truly one of the dullest romances you'll ever see and what a waste of talent. Look at the cast. Boyer plays a playwright who falls for a doctor. She also has a very modern outlook on marriage - separate apartments and he can have affairs if he wants. The only ironic twist in this is that the man really wants fidelity and the old-fashioned virtues so desperately tries to make his wife jealous, although she doesn't seem to catch on. In the right directorial hands (a Lubitsch, say or a Cukor) this would have been food for frothy fun, but here as directed without inspiration, wit or even humor by William Seiter, it comes across as pretty mediocre. Its Oscar-nominated Sound is routine and nothing special - another instance of studio submission in this category during the war years when anyone could place any film up for a nom in the sonic categories whether it deserved it or not. Unless you're a fan of Boyer or Sullavan, don't bother. Reginald Denny has a one scene walk on as a former flame of Sullavan and perks up the dreary state of affairs for about five minutes.
