Worth Watching for the Husband and Wife Team
2 January 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Screen Directors Playhouse: What Day is It? (1956)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A husband and wife dance team (Marge and Gower Champion) finish their act on stage and head back to the dressing room for a change when an argument breaks out after the husband can't remember what special event happened this day. This entry in the Screen Directors Playhouse certainly isn't among the best but it's a rather interesting one for a few reasons. The biggest one is the teaming of the real-life husband and wife team as both went on to have some interesting careers. The two of them were obviously very good working together and they offer up some impressive dance numbers including the film's highlight dealing with a clown act. This clown act was so good that you actually forget about the other story going on. Another major plus is a small comic bit involving some chimps but I won't give away how they're used. Overall the film is certainly worth watching thanks in large part to the stars. There's no question they were good working together and their chemistry also helps during the argument scenes as it seems they were good at that as well. However, these argument scenes are the real issue with the movie. We're just thrown into this fight and I must admit that it got somewhat annoying listening to them fight and you don't know why they're fighting. This annoying factor was a lot stronger than any actual mystery of why they're fighting. When the big secret is finally revealed I must admit that I then felt the fighting was about a whole lot of nothing.
