A sad disappointment
18 December 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Given that Preston Sturges was an uncredited writer and director on this film it has to be said that this film is a great disappointment.Clearly given the cast Paramount must have been looking on this film as one of their A pictures.The story is rather threadbare and the whole sorry mess rarely if ever manages to raise a laugh.Most books seem to show this film as running 94 minutes but the copy i viewed thankfully only ran 78 minutes.I doubt that the missing 16 minutes would have made any difference.The fact that so few people seem to have voted for this makes me feel that its poor reputation must preceed it.Funny how ill served was Mary Martin by the film vehicles that she chose to star in.A great talent wasted by the cinema.
