A Dull Production
17 August 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Wallace Beery stars in this World War Two comedy programmer from MGM. It sort of starts out like W.C. Fields' IT'S A GIFT and continues on using Beery's aw-shucks blowhard dealing with the problems of the home front during World War Two: rationing and Marjorie Main.

The movie is carried on Beery's charm, which is considerable. Despite the MGM gloss and re-takes by Beery's THE CHAMP director, Norman Taurog, it's never more than good and may be too much for a modern viewer.

Aside from Beery, there isn't much star power here. The director is Willis Goldbeck, who never got that far out of the MGM shorts department before returning to writing -- for John Ford, which is not negligible. The producer is Orville Dull, surely not the most auspicious name for a producer, who mostly produced other programmers and sequels for MGM. He did win an Oscar for producing 1948s THE SECRET LAND, though.
