When being carried down the hill after hurting her ankle Kay Bently's (Joan Crawford) blouse goes from soiled to clean several times. See more »
Tall, dull and handsome Brian Aherne is no match for Joan Crawford in this tepid, loose screwball that never catches fire. Trouper Crawford looks fit and trim riding a donkey backwards as well as stunning in a form fitting wedding gown but Aherne's Terry lacks the male intensity to parry with Joan for the film to balance properly making it a rather lopsided and unsatisfying affair. The only , albeit brief, moments of humor belong to two of the best go to servants in film history, Arthur Treacher and Eric Blore.
Spoiled little rich girl Kay Bentley literally falls into an archaeological dig in Greece where she meets Terry O'Neil who is at first annoyed but soon bewitched by Kay. He pursues her back to the states and the two begin a romantically abrasive relationship that continues right up to the altar.
As the entitled and rebellious Kay, Crawford's character is given little to work with and undeveloped while Aherne's thick headed and socially inept Irishman is an insensitive but then as now acceptable stereotype. He may have a doctorate but he's Irish and lack of decorum in polite society is to be expected. Support wise, Frank Morgan does his usual dithering and calming influence Aline MacMahon lends council in a typical day's work for both but like the rest of the cast fail to put any life into this formless formulaic that limps along rather than stride.
