good, not great
8 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

One should never pass up the opportunity to catch either William Powell or Myrna Loy, especially when working together. I found this rarely seen screwball comedy to be of interest and containing a good quotient of comedic punch, but it did tend to run on a bit toward the end, especially in Powell/Ireland's drag business. The film could have used a more merciless hand in the cutting room. None the less, it's well worth watching, especially for the contributions of Florence Bates, Jack Carson, Sig Ruman ("Concentration Camp Earhart" of 'To Be or Not to Be') and Donald MacBride.
