(at around 1 min) Desi Arnez comes home from work and pauses by a table and lamp to clandestinely listen to his wife and a couple invited to dinner before announcing that he is home. A few minutes later, a front shot of Desi reveals an open, wrought iron partition with a clear view of the front door and table that he was standing by, indicating his presence would have been evident from the moment he entered the house.

Squabbling marrieds Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz are given marital help from Lucy's guardian angel, played with self-bemusement by James Mason. The big joke in the material is that Ball's character sees the angel as a dead-ringer for Mason the Movie Star, but that's about the only laugh to be had in this lead weight scenario. Knowing what we do now about the troubled real-life relationship between Ball and Arnaz (big television stars by this point), it's only unease we get from watching them constantly bickering on the screen. I doubt the film was very fresh even in 1956, mostly due to the turgid, hapless screenplay by the normally talented Helen Deutsch. Nothing on display here is diverting, with the jokes, costumes, pacing, and production all sub-standard. Any mid-run episode of "I Love Lucy" runs rings around this comedic misfire. NO STARS from ****
