Light and fun.
9 December 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

William Lundigan plays a veteran coming home from the service. He finds that his wife, June Haver, has bought a tenement--a dilapidated one. The place is a bit of a money pit and the young couple struggles to keep the place afloat. However, when they learn that the place is about to be condemned, they seem at the end of their ropes.

In this apartment complex are many interesting characters and stories. The most interesting is Charley (Frank Fay)--an older man who seems to have made a career out of romancing women. And, since he's so charming, it's easy to see why women adore him. There's also Lundigan's old army buddy--played by Marilyn Monroe. The wife is NOT thrilled to see who her husband palled around with while in the army--and she's not excited to see her move in to the vacant apartment! It's interesting to see her being wooed by Jack Paar in one of his few roles before striking it big on "The Tonight Show" on television.

Overall, the film is a light and fun film. While it's not especially deep, it is enjoyable throughout--with a cute script and nice acting.
