Engaging trifle
16 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an engaging little trifle, the kind of innocuous fluff that was a staple of the studios during the Golden Age.

Shirley Temple's films as a young adult are a mixed lot at best but this one does show off her genuine gift for comedy, certainly not as well as her next film The Bachelor and the Bobbysoxer would but she does handle her role here with a deft touch. Made when she was just eighteen it also shows that as a young girl she was quite a lovely lass.

Franchot Tone, that marvelous actor so often ill used by Hollywood, brings his exasperated charm to bear on his role of a put upon diplomat trying to help out Shirley and the young and impossibly handsome Guy Madison. Speaking of Guy, his role of the frustrated prospective groom doesn't really require much of him but earnest attractiveness and he fills that well.

All in all silly and light as a feather this confection breaks absolutely no new ground but does showcase its stars to pleasing advantage. What more can you ask from a slight entertainment like this.
