Did You Know?


The ship Johnnie is depicted as sailing to Europe upon is the RMS Majestic of the White Star Line. Originally launched in Germany in 1914 as the SS Bismark, her construction was stopped due to World War I. Given to Great Britian as war reparations, she was finished and first sailed the Atlantic in 1922. She was the largest ocean liner in the world until France's SS Normandie in 1935. In 1936 she was converted to a training ship for the Royal Navy and renamed the HMS Caledonia. In 1939 a fire broke out aboard and she sank at anchor, and was finally raised and scrapped in 1943.

Ina Claire Is A Revelatiuon
2 October 2004 | by HandlinghandelSee all my reviews

The movie itself is stagy and stuffy. But Ina Claire is brilliant. Her performance defines a manner of acting that dominated comedies through the 1960s.

It is easiest, perhaps, to see Connate Bennett as someone in her mold. Irene Dunne was too, and it's interesting to note that Claire made a silent version of "The Awful Truth."

Others who seem to have either imitated or been directed to emulate her include Margaret Sullavan, Alice Brady, Eve Arden, and even Arlene Francis (the only salvation of the dreadful "One, Two, Three.")

Myrna Loy is saucy as the other woman but Claire dominates the proceedings.
