A complete failure
28 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is truly one of the worst films ever made by a major studio. It's shockingly bad, for the cast consists of first-rate people, and the year, 1942, was filled with the glories of filmdom that began in the mid 1930s, including the screwball comedy.

Somebody at United Artists decided to take a lousy although moderately successful play and turn it into a film. The script doomed the movie from the beginning. George Brent does the best he can with his part; indeed, one could argue that he was never less wooden. Joan Bennett, as beautiful as ever, is playing the Myrna Loy role, but there just isn't enough in the script worth her talent. Mischa Auer as a major comedian is a disaster. He is wholly unfunny and irritating. At one point, the director had him imitate the Harp Marx bit with the mirror. This flops too. Glenda Farrell and Una Merkel are simply wasted in the film.

There is nothing amusing in this "comedy," and no reason to see it. The actors must surely have been embarrassed. This viewer was.
