funny amusing comedy, 17 July 2001
Author: wcfields1880 from new jersey

The performance given by robert cummings is good.He gets caught by his wife barbara stanwyck in the arms of diana lynn several times.Not by his own doing but he gets blamed anyway.Diana Lynn played a role of manipulation and did it very convincingly.And barbara stanwyck played the wife who is always one step ahead of everyone.
