Sorry, nothing but bad vibes from this 'Maisie' movie...
There's a bad taste left after viewing this supposedly amusing Maisie film, the seventh in the series, which has Maisie and the other femme lead (JEAN ROGERS) making a lot of bad choices and doing a lot of foolish and sometimes mean-spirited things.
We get the idea that Maisie is supposed to be a "breezy" character and ANN SOTHERN is adept at getting this facet of Maisie's personality across. But the script has her making a chump of herself over befriending the wrong-headed JEAN ROGERS, who turns out to be a conniving idiot, and both in love with the equally addle-brained JAMES CRAIG, who plays a wartime test pilot in love with both girls working at a munitions factory.
The script calls for one foolish scene after another, finally ending with Craig dumping Rogers for Sothern and finally seeing the light.
Only die-hard fans of Ann Sothern will enjoy this one. The script needed to be totally revamped and is actually quite obnoxious at times.
