Sweet Little Take On Don Juan
1 September 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

This sure beat "The Captain's Paradise" by eight years or so. The plot is the same, though the Guiness movie is more polished.

William Bendix is appealing as the dumb lug who just can't help marrying two women. Phil Silvers gives a restrained performance as his sidekick.

Who wouldn't fall for Joan Blondell? Here she has a few strikes against her, but she's still a dream. One minor strike is that she hasn't aged well since her prime in the thirties Warner Brothers movies. The longer hairdo she sports isn't flattering.

The other strike is her formidable array of brothers: a cop, a football captain, etc.

The first real flaw in the movie is the other lady: Mary Treen. Meaning no offense to her surviving family, she has little screen presence and is surely no match for Blondell. OK, the character she plays is a great cook. But for that he would jeopardize his relationship with Blondell? As things get complicated, the movie gets a little frantic and increasingly improbable. It would have been better had it been resolved without all the twists and turns.

I like the working of La ci darem la mano from "Don Giovanni" into the musical score.
