Despite having a good cast and a good script, this film is not that good at all. Betty Hutton is an aspiring actress who is absolutely bonkers in more or less every film she's in. It would be good to see her in a serious role rather than comedy roles where she is over the top. Victor Mature wants to be a Broadway director and is a bit more believable. This is probably down to the writing rather than his performance. He has some good lines, but it's just that other characters around him are not so well drawn or believable. Hutton is quite spirited, and you well believe that she can hold her own in a fight with a man or woman, maybe even two men. It would take a big woman to get the better of Hutton. Overall, it is disposable fun.
