Early Ann Sothern film is good indication of her promise...
30 May 2007 | by DoylenfSee all my reviews

But the film itself is a dated trifle that passes the time pleasantly at a little more than an hour. ANN SOTHERN shows why her breezy charm worked magic on audiences and top-billed EDMUND LOWE, largely unknown today, is her leading man as a Hollywood director.

The title tune gets a nice workout in the opening scene inside a movie studio while the plot is launched about a temperamental Swedish diva on the warpath about nobody leaving her alone (a la Garbo). When she storms off the lot in a huff, guess who waltzes in--ANN SOTHERN of course.

"As long as she's Swedish," says producer GREGORY RATOFF. So Lowe meets Sothern at a carnival and is convinced she'd make a good replacement for his Swedish diva. Sothern reluctantly agrees but says, "We'll never get away with it." And, of course, the rest of the breezy romantic comedy (predictable as it is) is concerned with the transformation of Sothern into a Swedish actress and her romantic alliance with Edmund Lowe.

It's a well-written, fast-moving comedy of Hollywood manners and morals and Lowe, Sothern and Ratoff manage to make it work. The youthful Miss Sothern is at her prettiest and has fun with her key role, Swedish accent and all.

Summing up: Better than average comedy from Columbia, well worth watching if you're an Ann Sothern fan.
