Marjorie Main stars in this MGM B picture in the title role of Tish. As per usual it's one of those B films from MGM with their usual production values it has an A look about it. All but for the fact that none of MGM's big stars are in this.
She lives in a small town with her scapegrace of a nephew Lee Bowman and hangs out all day with her two generational pals, Aline McMahon and Zasu Pitts. When after a trip to Toronto she brings back the baby of the late Susan Peters who was sickly to begin with and who died in childbirth all kinds of talk of scandal ensues about the real parentage of the infant. Nobody's believing she's Marjorie's, especially not her nemesis town judge and town busybody Guy Kibbee.
The three women are the center of this film, it's like Lucy Ricardo with two Ethel Mertzes. There's also a nice little romantic quadrangle between Bowman, Peters, Richard Quine and Virginia Grey playing a big part of the plot.
This one is worth a look especially if you're a fan of any of the three women companions.
