Lucille Ball stars as Kay Williams, a woman who discovers her beloved husband wasn't faithful while away as a war correspondent and reacts by planting clues that she hadn't been faithful either. This film is cute, and thinly plotted. It is a good showcase for Ball, who also is given a great wardrobe, designed by Travis Banton and Al Teitelbaum. George Brent plays her husband, Bill. It is nice to see him in a comedic role. Vera Zorina plays a woman who Bill had been romancing on the side, and while her acting is mediocre, her looks are stunning.
There are great supporting players, especially Raymond Walburn, Carl Esmond, and William Wright as eager suitors of Kay's, and Charles Winninger and Elisabeth Risdon as Bill's fuming father and tolerant mother. Louise Beavers is also a delight as Kay's jovial maid, Martha, and it is a typical role for a black actress of the time.
The script is often times silly, but the story is not dull, and the film does have some fun moments for Ball's comedic chops as well as Brent's. Throughout I was smiling and giggling, and I think that was the intent of the filmmakers.
