Saw this one years ago and thought it was an uproarious screwball comedy with the talented John Lund doing wonders with his role, pretending to be a bumbling idiot. He is doing his "act" in order to help Wanda Hendrix inherit her millions. Directed by the wonderful actor, Richard Haydn with a wonderful cast, including Robert Stack, Ilka Chase and Monty Woolley.
John Lund was an excellent actor who never found his true potential on film--an actor with a Broadway background who won him his first screen role opposite Olivia de Havilland in 'To Each His Own'.
But here his comic timing is perfect. In 'The Perils of Pauline' he was merely a foil for the antics of Betty Hutton--but here he has the primary comic role and he does a smashingly good job. Too bad more couldn't be made of his multi-talents in later films.
Where is the video version? Another great Paramount film never transferred to home video.
