So-so Romantic comedy of how several professors try to get their colleague's job back by playing the horses scientifically isn't much. What strengths there are lay in the supporting cast, particularly the ever-delightful Edmund Gwenn and Sig Rumann, as well as Ava Gardner in a well-played role as the other woman. James Craig is ok in the lead and Frances Gifford seems to be doing a breathless imitation of Larraine Day, but the overall effect was apparently so unhappy that director Willis Goldbeck did his work under a pseudonym.
The intent was apparently to produce something light and breezy and reminiscent of SARATOGA, but it all appears a bit harebrained.
