Silly second-feature starring perplexing Jane Greer
Friendly, completely inconsequential second-biller from MGM has level-headed nurse Jane Greer assigned to get the annual hospital donation out of wealthy lothario Peter Lawford; after a rocky start, they warm towards each other, but it turns out doctor Gig Young likes Greer as well! Irrepressible comedy is fast and brief, which is a good thing because the plot is paper thin. There's an ornery nurse who gets laughs, and Young is amiable and sturdy, but Jane Greer is an odd one: she gets only a few funny lines and has to run around worried about everybody, but an innate sexiness does manage to shine through her stalwart appearance. ** from ****
