George Brent was never meant for screwball comedy
20 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

Despite the support of some great comedic character actors (Mischa Auer, Una Merkel), the leaden presence of George Brent sinks any chances of this movie being very funny.

Joan Bennett is cute and funny, but she can't carry the whole load on her petite shoulders.

Stiff, wooden, and uncharismatic, Mr. Brent was extremely adequate in a number of fine dramas. For comedy, his presence in the cast is the kiss of death.
