comedy and romance
18 December 2006 | by donaldgreybarnhouseSee all my reviews

Most people who have actually seen this movie seem to love it, and comment on its humor. Certainly it is a top drawer comedy, but I first saw it as a teenager and fell in love with Wanda Hendrix immediately. She is gorgeous, and has a speech pattern that borders on a little lisp, and it gives her a combination of innocence and appeal that is hard to beat. You easily learn to hate the bad guy who is out to get her, and the development of the romance is delightful. And, of course, any time Barry Fitzgerald is on camera, he steals the scene. Ilke Chase and Monte Wooley are marvelous in character parts. Robert Stack does a great job as the wolf you love to hate. When Wanda Hendrix is tracing letters with her finger on Art Lund's chest, you have to be a very unusual person not to feel your temperature rise a little. I agree with the reviewer who can't understand why this gem has not been published on DVD. I'd stand in line to get it.
