Oddly obscure considering the leads
18 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remarkably obscure comedy considering it stars Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck at their peaks. Even if it doesn't measure up to The Lady Eve or The Mad Miss Manton this is still a cute little comedy. Starts out charmingly with Henry at his sheepish befuddled best and Missy her usual take charge dame. It does flounder around about in the middle with Fonda acting like a stupid buffoon but comes back together at the end. While the two leads can carry a picture both on their own and together without breaking a sweat fortunately they don't have to here. They are ably abetted by Edgar Buchanan's folksy reliability, Ralph Peters as trusty butler Joseph and the under appreciated Ruth Donnelly as Dr. Stanwyck's wryly observing nurse. Both leads are at the peak of their attractiveness as well with Barbara looking particular beautiful with loose flowing hair and a smart wardrobe. Difficult to find but worth checking out if you can.
