[to an arguing Althea and Oliver]
I think you better excuse me. I detest scenes not of my own making. You know, the more I see of marriage, the more thankful I am to be the last of a long line of bachelors.

Viewed this film when it was first shown in New York City and always enjoyed the great acting of Claude Rains, Constance Bennett, Joan Caulfield, Audrey Totter and Hurd Hatfield. This was a very well produced picture with great photography of Long Island parkway scenes and the old water front sections of Manhattan. Claude Rains,(Victor Grandison)," Phantom of the Opera",'43, was a mystery writer and had his own radio show with all kinds of old time recording equipment and secret compartments to hide his mysterious goings on at home and in the studio. Joan Caulfied,(Matilda Frazier),"Dear Wife",'49 gave a great supporting role and was very beautiful in the close up shots of her face in black and white. Audrey Totter (Althea Keane)," Jet Attack",'58 was very sexy and attractive. Althea and Victor both knew each other very well and kept a watchful eye on each other through out the entire picture. It was nice to see Hurd Hatfield(Oliver Keane),"The Picture of Dorian Gray",'45 make an appearance in this film and played his role to perfection. There was even a car chase in the end of the picture and lots of drama in an old time JUNK YARD! Don't miss this great film, it is really worth watching.
