How men can be so simple. Good night. Trueboy knows more about women than you do.
And who is Trueboy?
One of Grandpa's hogs.
Well, hogs are very nice people, thank you. You wouldn't catch one of them going around telling somebody they loved them when they're going to "eventually" somebody else.
And who did I go around telling them I loved them?
I suppose you weren't whooping for your dead Indian right out on that dance floor.
When and where I whoop for my dead Indian is my affair...

Toni (Paulette Goddard) and Jo (Virginia Field) are both keen to pursue Brad (Ray Milland). While Brad and Jo are already acquainted, Toni sees her opportunity for an introduction with Brad by impersonating a fortune-teller Madame Zenobia (Gladys George) and telling him his fortune lies with someone else who he is about to meet who has red hair and is eating an apple (ie, herself out of her disguise). At the same time, she gives readings to Jo, encouraging her to go away! Its very funny in parts and the film follows Toni's attempts to wrestle Brad away from Jo. There is a good supporting cast including Pops (Cecil Kellaway) and Biff (William Bendix) as Brad's chauffeur. Its a comedy in which the women, in particular, are very funny.
My particular copy is taped from the TV and is too bright - I'm not sure if this is just how the film looks these days or if its something to do with the individual that I purchased it from. However, the quality of the film is a minor negative point. Its enjoyable, the cast are all likable and I'll be watching it again at a future date.
