They convince Susan she has an opportunity to fulfill all her dreams, and the trio heads for Palm Beach. Susan meets John Wheeler who says he is shopping for a sailboat. Believing that he is a millionaire, Warren and May sell him a boat that doesn't belong to them, and make off with his $15,000 life savings.

Good Potential-Poor Delivery
24 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Where did this come from? I never heard of it. Gene Tierny with a Brookly accent? Laird Cregar? Has to be fun! It was but only a little.

Fonda is doing his "B" version of "The Lady Eve". I've seen it too often. No one has any real snappy lines. The movie relies on situation comedy and a chase at the end. Sometimes these are good, but if I wanted chases, the Bowery Boys might have sufficed.

The film seemed to be a bit pasted together. New characters appear out of the blue and things are referenced in the dialogue which were not in the film. These were so obvious that it bothered me.

Was it my imagination or did the background music feature snatches of the theme from "Laura"?
