Marsha Meredith, an attorney-at-law, is nominated for a Federal judgeship, but her nomination is opposed by a 'Good-Government' group who think her divorce makes her unfit for the job. This evolves into situations, happening in Florida, New England, Washington D.C. and the Adirondacks, such as the misunderstood husband trying to win back his wife, and the misunderstood wife trying to make her husband jealous, and one case of mistaken identity after another, after another.Written by

Tell It To The Judge finds Rosalind Russell cast once again as career woman, in this case a lawyer about to be made a federal judge through the machinations of her grandfather Harry Davenport. But Senator Thurston Hall is questioning her character on the grounds of a messy divorce. Shows you how old fashioned this film has become and how terribly dated.
Her ex-husband wants her back and Bob Cummings as the ex does get her back, kind of, sort of. But after that it all gets kind of wild as she uses Gig Young as a foil against Cummings and Bob keeps getting in trouble trying to hide witness Marie McDonald in one of his cases because Bob is a lawyer as well.
What director Norman Foster did well with were some great supporting player performances from a cast of seasoned Hollywood professionals. I think the two most memorable are Clem Bevans as a lighthouse keeper with a side contract from Cupid and Douglass Dumbrille as Cummings playboy client. That one was really a case of reverse casting because Dumbrille is best known for playing slick villains, but I wish there had been more of him as the merry making playboy.
Tell It To The Judge is certainly dated, but while it's not Rosalind Russell's best her fans will not be disappointed.
