Lucy and William Holden make a fine team in this entertaining comedy
Lucille Ball starred in many films from the late 30's until she entered TV in 1951. Many of these films are forgotten but were highly popular at the time. WHile no classic this charming comedy gives Lucy a chance to shine in a tailor- made role that allows her to show real chemistry with a very handsome young William Holden who would along with Lucy become one of the very biggest superstars of the 1950's and 1960's. She plays a somewhat scatterbrained secretary for secret bookie Holden. Although some have said this is a B-film they are wrong. This was a major Columbia picture at the time. The glossy production values prove it. Definitely *** out of ****. For the best Lucy movie comedy check out the superior Technicolor MGM smash "The Long Long Trailor(1954).
