  • One of those "finds" as you cross the dial

    I am personally very interested in B movies I've not seen, as I have found so many gems among them. This one is a case in point. It's alive and jumping, with some pathos and endearing moments. There's a lot going on. You've got your family group, a son come back with a fiance, a precocious little sister, the family servants, the neighbors and their maids. Martha is the core family's maid and she has some secrets. The "affairs" part of the title actually involves some very benign goings on. It's a comedy of errors for the most part, with things getting sorted out well in the end. Of course, what happens in the middle is high carnival. Spring Byington is a draw for me, and doesn't disappoint here, along with the rest. There are a lot of laughs and fun. It's a keeper for me.

    "The Affairs of Martha" is about so much more than the rich folks and their goings-on. Of course, each and every family wonders if it could be their staff writing a tell-all with juicy gossip. In reality, Martha is attempting to better herself with education. Yeah, Martha! Virginia Weidler as Miranda is a charming young lady following in the footsteps of her mother, Sophie Sommerfield, played by Spring Byington. Marjorie Main portrays kitchen help Mrs. McKissick with as much flair as she does in the future "Ma and Pa Kettle" movies. A pleasant way to spend an hour at the movies. Afterthought - IF the rich people would behave nicely to begin with, they would have nothing to fear!
