Someone, perhaps veteran B director Phil Rosen, created okay, one-scene moments for former A stars, Dorthry Lee (Wheeler and Woolsey pics), Evelyn Knapp and Betty Compson. Someone also just saw His Girl Friday, so lots of pressroom reporter comraderie with one a star reporter with marriage issues. There's too much battle of sexes, verbal sparrage between reporter Ford and wifey Parker. Unfortunately, instead of capable, adult feminest Roz, we have the beautiful, but insipid Jean Parker, at home twiddling her thumbs and fuming. She complains he's missing dinner. He whines and lies.
