Did You Know?

Trivia

Although obviously not credited as such, this is very clearly a knock-off of George M. Cohan's play "Seven Keys to Baldpate," which RKO had just filmed the previous year. See more »

Goofs

Early in the movie, Mr. Layton (Porter Hall) has a large cigar in his mouth. The cigar moves from side to side as the camera angle changes. Much too fast and not in continuity with the scene. See more »

Quotes

Pat Quinn: With me by his side, he wouldn't get into jams!
Alice Merritt: When I was married to him, it was jam for breakfast, jam for lunch, and jam for dinner.

Madcap Movie Of Marital Mishaps
5 December 2001 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

A frustrated Broadway playwright finds himself SNOWED UNDER in a Connecticut country house with both of his ex-wives, the flirtatious girl next door, a deputy sheriff and a lawyer.

This delightful little comedy is an excellent example of the fluff films that Warner Bros. was so adept at producing during Hollywood's Golden Age. Boasting fine production values, a literate script & some genuinely funny performances, it is a shame that the film is so obscure today.

George Brent & Genevieve Tobin have charm to spare as the protagonists whose divorce seems in danger of floundering; sophisticated & witty, they are a very entertaining duo. Glenda Farrell is hilarious as the boozy floozy after Brent for unpaid alimony - this brassy blonde could always be counted on for some mischievous merriment.

Pixilated Frank McHugh is the milkman turned most unlikely deputy. John Eldredge plays the gentle young lawyer; Patricia Ellis is not gentle at all as the pushy prom princess from next door. Apoplectic producer Porter Hall & sassy housekeeper Helen Lowell add to the amusement.

Movie mavens should recognize Mary Treen as a secretary & Olin Howlin as the sheriff, both uncredited.
