What a wonderfully flexible this thing is, cinema. Within it, one can structure all sorts of things that can reach us.
Probably the two that are the most profound are how movies define fate and sometimes in the same breath, love.
This is one that deals with both. And the love part has nothing to do with relationships but with the simple charm of a type of woman. This was a big success when new, but today isn't even worth putting on DVD.
Odd, because for what it is, it is perfect. The goal is to parade an enticing woman, a real natural charmer.
The girl in this case is Betsy Drake, playing against Cary Grant who does his usual thing. She is something between an Audrey Hepburn and Debbie Reynolds, both of whom did this sort of movie frequently.
Her chin is narrow which gives the effect of an overly large and expressive mouth, used very theatrically. She also has a slight lisp. Combined with her exuberant manner and honest presentation, she is absolutely captivating.
And so Grant thought as well because he moved in with her during this and married her shortly thereafter.
How odd it is that someone could peak so in one film (this her first) and fade so quickly from importance.
Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.
