Does your wife really want you to play this part?
Yeah, she's all for it.
I was just wondering. The day I met her, she seemed a little difficult about terms and rather domineering, I thought.
She wasn't always like that.
Oh I know, I know. They all start out as Juliets and wind up as Lady Macbeths.

I couldn't get into the beginning at first, watching Bing Crosby audition for the part. But once he had finished the film grabbed my attention and held on to it. I was impressed with the writing, portraying the character's subtle changes to make life more gratifying despite tragedy and loss. I loved the ending, seeing how devoted his wife really is. I'll recommend this film. I gave it a vote of 9, and out of a grade from A+ to F I give it an B+.
