Trivia

Filmed between mid-December 1943 and May 17, 1944, the movie's wide release was held back until March 9, 1946, and then the picture's Manhattan opening at the Strand Theatre followed on March 15, 1946. Snipped out of the release print were several references to "ongoing" World War II, which had ended on August 14, 1945. See more »

The amazing thing is that someone must have thought this was a good idea!
4 February 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very, very contrived film with a very weak story idea. Considering what great films Warner Brothers usually made, the plot is amazingly poor. It's not surprising, then, that the studio held this film for a long time before it was released--as apparently they, too, knew it was a seriously flawed film.

The film begins with some radio show that is looking for lost people--and in this case it's the missing heir to a $10,000,000 fortune. When Judy Jones (Joan Leslie) is located, she learns that the money isn't hers yet--she must be married by Saturday to a man of genius IQ or the money is to be given to a museum. The problem is that the only guy who might marry her is a bit of a clod--and certainly NOT a genius (Robert Alda). So, Judy decides the best place to find a smart guy is the local technical college and she manages to charm her way into be admitted to school--even though it's an all-male campus and Jones is a complete idiot (I'm talking almost a Gracie Allen-level idiot!). Will this moron get a guy by the deadline...and will the audience even care? Considering that the leading lady is annoying, dumb and pretty self-centered, I sure didn't.

This film proves that even with wonderful character actors like Cuddles Sakall, Ruth Donnelly and Edward Everett Horton you CAN make a bad film. Unlikable characters, a contrived plot, bad writing and unnecessary singing make this a real dud.
