Trivia

It's interesting to see a wedding ring on Wallace Beery's left ring finger. He was divorced from his second wife in 1939. And his character in this film is not married. See more »

Goofs

Bascomb said that he didn't want anything to do with marriage. But in one scene with Margaret O'Brien one can see Beery's wedding ring. See more »

A cute film
28 February 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pure 1946. Wallace Beery and Margaret O'Brien try to steal from the film from each other. It's a hoot. Great entertainment.
