Wow!
15 November 2004 | by (Cape Cod, MA US) – See all my reviews

Very witty script. I had no idea that this movie existed.

Was flipping through the TV channels and settled on AMC, a channel that no longer runs black and white social comedies from the 30's through '50s.

I was delighted and surprised to find this Clifton Webb jewel. As a mother of two younger children (one ten months) it is difficult to find movies and TV shows that entertain both children and adults. This one fit the bill.

Ginger Rogers is incredibly well cast as the woman who is all for business and Webb is quite the comic.
