Joan Fontaine is very funny in one of her only comedies.
2 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

Joan Fontaine, before 1945, only made a few comedies, and they were B pictures. In this movie, she changes her personality with every new man she meets. She met four men, and she changed her personality four times. Each time she is a different type of woman: shy, movie star, social, and intellectual. She is very funny in each of the roles as she tries to readjust to the new life, and try to find the right man. She finally ends up with her first husband, but goes through a lot to find out he is the right one. Very funny, I recommend it.
