How Can You Beat Fred MacMurray and Paula Goddard?
23 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

I watched this film for two reasons and only two: Fred MacMurray and Paula Goddard - both of whom I adore and always have. It doesn't make any difference what they do, they're always wonderful and an absolute delight to watch. That's what star power is about - you can't keep your eyes off them because there is something almost mystical about how they demand your attention. And to top it off the script was done by Karl Tunberg who just happened to write the screenplay for the remake of Ben-Hur - which ironically lost out in the adapted script category while winning every other nomination it had for a total of eleven wins. Poor Karl. I'll bet he was half-way out of his seat to accept his Oscar when those fateful words were announced: Rome at the Top.
