    Maltin must have been in a bad mood when he reviewed this because it is a gem. It stands up against any of the romantic comedies of the 30's and 40's. How can a movie with Rita and Merle in their prime not be great? Rita sparkles and Merle engages with a good script. The story is fun and full of laughs and has a sweet ending.

  • Merle Oberon, Dennis Morgan, and Rita Hayworth!

    Merle Oberon and Dennis Morgan lead a cast of players in this early 1940's film about a man who finds his wife about to leave him for another. Dennis Morgan stars as the man who favors his job over his wife, he's an overseas reporter constantly on the move, but when he discovers his marriage is about to end feels he must try to save it. The wife, played by the always glamorous Merle Oberon, feels neglected by her husband and ends up meeting another man. That man, Ralph Bellamy, falls for Oberon and the two plan to marry. The only problem is, Dennis Morgan still loves Oberon, and doesn't wish to give her up so easily. This is a film where the cast far outshines the story, the material isn't bad, it's just somewhat routine. It's more or less a typical light Hollywood movie love triangle, a wife must choose between two men. Throw in energetic co-star Rita Hayworth, her character is a reporter who has fallen for Dennis Morgan and waits for his divorce, and the cast is quite good here. The rest of the support cast helps this movie: Hattie McDaniel, Butterfly McQueen, and comedic sidekick George Tobias. Big props to James Gleason, he plays a typical classical Hollywood newspaper editor here, this man does well in whatever film he's in. Gleason is always entertaining. As stated, the cast carries this routine light romantic-comedy, the film being a decent watch if only for them. Merle Oberon, still at her peak during this time, is typical Merle Oberon here. Beautiful, dignified, fashionable, and witty: classic Hollywood glamour. Dennis Morgan, a talented singer /film star who managed to become one of the top leading men during the war years, is his usual self here. Charming, funny, with a touch of light comedy. Rita Hayworth? She's cool, she brings much needed energy to this movie. Not the best film for any of these players by far, but a decent watch.

    A mildly humorous romance that really wastes a fine cast. Most notably for Hattie Mac Daniel & Butterfly Mc Queen - who steal every scene they are in and who are relegated to demeaning speech/dialogue- including having to utter what is considered by some to be the most racially demeaning exchange on film: look for it near the end it's : ' Who Dat? ',etc. An historical artifact.
