Review: This flim proves that Joan can play high comedy. I'm always reading that she couldn't. Perhaps it took the talent
of a director like George cukor to bring out her talent. This is truly a "A" picture. The cast alone - Freddie March,
Rose Hobart, Nigel Bruce, and a young gorgeous Rita Hayworth. Marjorie Main has one of the funniest lines in it however. As
she and her husband are pulling dustcovers in a gloomy entrance she, as only she can utters the immortal line,"Look at
this hallway, I'd frighten Dracula!
I only wish Adrian hadn't gone so far overboard with her costumes. This film is occasionally shown on television. So,
be sure to watch for it. It's truly a treat!

Review: This was the first Joan movie I ever saw. It was back in 1990. I was 12 and TNT still showed classic films(with
commercials). Anyhow, I was completely in awe of Joan (especially in that white suit). She gives knock-out performance and
is delightful. I would recommended this film to any Joan fan or classic movie goer.
