Like a slice of real life
17 December 2017 | by rodrig58See all my reviews

It's an absolutely charming film, directed and filmed in a more than professional way, admirable played by all the actors. Unfortunately, and once again unfortunately, the gorgeous and unique woman in the history of the world, MM, has only a small role. But, so small, Marilyn is an absolute delight in all aspects: personality, acting, physical beauty. In the main roles and therefore with the most time on the screen, the almost completely unknown June Haver and William Lundigan. The one who steals the film with a seductive role (as in real life, being married to Barbara Stanwyck, Gladys Buchanan, Betty Kean and Frances White) is Frank Fay.
