A fun movie!
26 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the more fun "B" movies I have seen recently. I am a movie collector who enjoys clean light comedies, and enjoyed this. It stars S.Z. Sakall, so naturally it doesn't try to cover the meaning of life, or contain any heavy-handed social commentary. My kind of movie!!

It has a highly unlikely story line with enough laughs along the way to make it enjoyable. Whether it is a sight gag, plot absurdities, the characters breaking out in song, or "inside" jokes about the actors themselves, it is obvious that everyone involved was having fun.

Joan Leslie plays a naive good girl who works odd jobs, and Robert Alda is a band leader.

Hungarian character actor S.Z Sakall plays a Hungarian professor from Budapest (go figure).

Joan Leslie can inherit ten million dollars if she gets married. But it has to happen very soon, or else the inheritance is off. The movie is spent with Sakall, three young single guys (Alda as band leader, a young professor, and a stalker), and some very eager inheritance lawyers who try to marry off Leslie.

After we are introduced to the characters, Sakall is shown walking around outside and chattering about his old science laboratory and how he wants a new one. Then he remembers that he accidentally left dynamite on the stove in his lab, and seconds later we hear it blow up in the distance. "No new laboratory, now no old laboratory."

He ends up in jail twice in the movie, but not for accidentally blowing up his lab.

A memorable line: (Sakall is on the stand in court):

"For how long have you known the ladies in question?"

"Question, what's question??"

"You DO understand the English language..."

"Yes I understand. I talk English perfect. A couple of years ago I had an accent, but I lose it."

Will Leslie be able to make up her mind on which guy to marry before the clock runs out? Will some lucky guy end up with Leslie? Will Sakall get his funding for a new science lab? Will the inheritance lawyers strike it rich? Watch it to find out!
