Robert Cummings and Lizabeth Scott
5 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Although this film introduces cinema audiences to Lizabeth Scott, it doesn't have anything going for it. You see Robert Cummings as a married man getting involved in domestic life washing up dishes, but this in and of itself is not advancing the plot. Cummings' acting is fine, but the individual performances do not lift the film. Scott is not easy on the eye even when she smiles. There is an arch at the side of her lip as if she has a bad taste in the mouth. It looks as though she is going to snarl at any minute, and you get the feeling that any happiness that she has will soon die in her face. Maybe if they had cast a better leading lady then her performance would have lifted the film.
