Robert Taylor and Greer Garson (before she was "Greer Garson").star in this one, of course, which can be both delightful and funny if you watch it with no pretenses. The story is what it is, often impractical and inconsistent, lots of gaps, but it's also very creative. You must simply let it happen. Don't ask questions.
Lew Ayre's "Sky Ames" is confounding. He acquiesces to his best friend stealing the love of his life literally right out from under his nose, engineers an outlandish reunion, then finally makes sense in the end when he was to forget the whole thing.
Robert Taylor's "Jeff Holland" is a jerk. I found nothing likable about him, which is a shame, but Taylor himself was great. There's a scene where he's talking to his wife about his in-laws and they're all hiding behind furniture waiting for the cue to surprise him. They overheard his tirade, of course, and when they do appear, you watch the brashness Taylor portrays as it is instantly reduced to a guy who feels an inch tall. But then he's back to the jerk again.
There's some good supporting acting, as well, and it's worth a look. Be sure to suspend disbelief before viewing.
