Joslyn & Keyes Were Fantastic
9 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Greatly enjoyed this mystery, comedy classic from 1943 starring Allyn Joslyn,(Barry Craig),"I Wake Up Screaming" and Evelyn Keyes,(Jane Craig),"Gone With the Wind". These two actors team up as a husband and wife detectives who try to solve a murder and seem to go around in complete circles through out the entire picture. This is really a comedy with plenty of 1943 jokes and laughter; there is an elevator operator who takes a year and a day to reach each floor and tells his complete life's history before you even reach the main lobby. Evelyn Keys was very young at the age of 27 and had not too long ago completed her appearance in "Gone With The Wind" 1939, where is gave an outstanding performance. Allyn Joslyn gave a great performance as a hen pecked detective who had a wife follow him every where he decided to go. Nice Classic Film and very entertaining.
