  • great movie

    Leonard Maltin must have been confused because Ava Gardner is not in this film, and it's one of the most entertaining films I've seen starring Melvyn Douglas and Norma Shearer. I enjoyed it very much.

    With all due respect, Leonard got this one, let us say, wrong. The combination of Norma Shearer, Melvyn Douglas, and their troop of solid Metro cast mates plus newbie Ava Gardner, make this sophisticated romantic comedy by Noel Coward a delight. The plot is -supposed- to be silly and fun, with witty banter and the butter smooth interaction of all the cast, doing total justice to Coward's brilliance. Norma is always at her best but she is particularly relaxed and excellent and Melvyn is -perfect- as her playboy husband. No wonder so many actresses were envious of Norma's talent, she was truly and deservedly the Queen of Metro for many years. Joan Crawford, watch and learn! Get a snack, snuggle back, and enjoy real professionals tickle your funny bone and keep you chuckling. Oh, and by the way, Metro is unequalled for Art Direction by the brillant Cedric Gibbons and his staff. The sets are noticeably fantastic and fully in the beautiful, authentic Metro style.

    A sparkling romantic comedy. Melvyn Douglas is superb but Norma Shearer is sensational in her role. The dialogue is crisp, fast-paced, and genuinely witty. This movie marks the end of a never-to-be-regained period of sophistication, elegance, and paradoxically innocence, before the shattering war experience changed American tastes. I never enjoyed a romantic comedy so much. This is a late and overlooked masterpiece in a genre that postwar filmmakers and audiences could never again do or enjoy so well.

  • Shearer never looked better

    Silly plot yes! But Norma Shearer never looked better!
