Marsha Meredith, an attorney-at-law, is nominated for a Federal judgeship, but her nomination is opposed by a 'Good-Government' group who think her divorce makes her unfit for the job. This evolves into situations, happening in Flordia, New England, Washington D.C. and the Adirondacks, such as the misunderstood husband trying to win back his wife, and the misunderstood wife trying to make her husband jealous, and one case of mistaken identity after another, after another.

Fantastic Comedy not available on DVD
24 April 2010 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This is a fantastic comedy, fast, dynamic, clever and played extremely well by Rosalid Russell and Robert Cummings. Their chemistry is what makes comedies like this work so well, not a moment of boredom, pure laughter!! It's a real pity this is not available on DVD in Europe, I would buy it straight away!! Well...I would buy any movie with Rosalind Russell, especially her comedies. Such actresses are rare to find, she was absolutely great, one of the best and is a real pity that she is so forgotten today. Her timing and skills were absolutely unique, not many actresses are able to carry a comedy like she used to! Also Robert Cummings was very effective, don't know this actor much but I think I will try to find out more about him now!
