Storyline

Married life isn't as blissful as either Dick or Janie had hoped. Dick is hired to write filler for his father-in-law's newspaper, but is never allowed to prove his real worth. Janie has to do housekeeping while dealing with a "well-meaning" mother and mother-in-law. When Dick invites an army buddy to stay with them, and that buddy turns out to be a girl, the situation takes a turn for the worse. Written by Chris Stone <jstone@bellatlantic.net>

Trivia

The film was a sequel to Warner Bros.' 1944 picture "Janie". Although a "Janie" series had been planned, Warner Bros. abandoned the idea after actress Joyce Reynolds, who played "Janie" in the 1944 film, temporarily retired to join her husband, a U.S. Marine, in Quantico, VA, according to a Feb 1945 studio press release. A 2 Feb 1945 Hollywood Reporter news item noted that director David Butler was replaced by Vincent Sherman after he was assigned to the Warner Bros. film "The Time, the Place, the Girl". See more »

Routine Movie Elevated By Superb Cast
17 November 2006 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Joan Leslie is appealing as the tile character. Robert Hutton is likable is her fiancé and then husband. Complications develop when a buddy from the service turns up. The buddy happens to have been a WAAC. She is played by that beautiful, wily second-level star Dorothy Malone.

Janie's parents are the always appealing Edward Arnold and Ann Harding. I am no fan of Harding in her peak days: She was a pale, hand-wring women's-picture heroine in the 1930s. Her return in the forties was most auspicious. She and Arnold worked together in one of his excellent movies about the guide dog-using blind detective.

I'm not familiar with the actress who plays Hutton's mother, but she is good. No less than the great Robert Benchley plays his father.

Margaret Hamilton is also very funny as an inept yet dictatorial cleaning woman. And the versatile Donald Meek puts in an appearance as an out-of-towner who's interested in buying Janie's father's newspaper.

The plot veers toward silliness, with such grave issues as whose parents' draperies to hang in the couple's new apartment. But it's a nice study of young married life and a better cast could scarcely have been found.
