Quotes

McGuffey: [dinner table conversation about church activity] Actually I have been to Los Angeles once, and that only for a few days on business. Well, Hollywood in the west and New York in the east are just not typical.
Mrs. McGuffey: Now, Alvin, you must admit that they are fun.
McGuffey: I am talking about religion, Ellen. And that has nothing to do with fun.
Mrs. McGuffey: [apologetically] Yes, you are so right, Alvin.

Routine comedy from the Doctor team
15 May 2017 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Ralph Thomas and Betty Box made routine films like this in between making their highly successful Doctor films.Many of the actors who starred in that series appear here.Basically this film contains a series of sketches showing a newly weds series of disasters with hire help till they find Mylene Demyngot.This then as a dramatic twist to allow a happy ending for the couple.Some good performances enliven what is by any standards a routine fairly unfunny script.Michael Craig gives his standard performance.He was the last actor under contract to the Rank Organisation.
