    Just saw this movie last week before Thanksgiving & did not catch the beginning with the name of the movie & who was starring in it, but nevertheless, it kept me up until the very end. I enjoyed the movie very much & thought Lucille Ball was great in this. I was so hoping she would end up with Victor Mature but did not happen. I was fascinated by Victor Mature with his unusual looks & his physique playing the quarterback whose time was coming to an end due to a heart problem. I was so hoping he would dump his wife Lizabeth Scott in the movie but no he only smacked her & smothered her with his kisses but he told her how it was going to be since he just took on the assistant coach position & she was to behave as expected of her. I did like that part. It was great recognizing Lloyd Nolan & Jack Paar. I did have to laugh when they were talking about the money they would win ($1,000) if they won the championship! Would like to see this movie again from the very beginning as I enjoyed it very much. Written 11/28/2011.

    SPOILER ALERTThe greedy wife just grates on your nerves the entire movie, so at the very end, when Victor Mature finally makes the right choice, well, it's very satisfying. He puts his foot down and takes back the reins of his life. It's very, oh, how can I put this... satisfying when he slaps his wife's face, and tells her what's what, and puts her in her place. I was sitting there stunned, and then, he slaps her tearstained and lipstick smudged face AGAIN! Fantastic! They don't make movies like this anymore. I replayed the scene several times, and frame-by framed it, and oh! What a great scene of justified humiliation. Delightful!

    With a title like "Easy Living" and a cast including Lucille Ball, one would expect a comedy, and that it is not. It is a sports drama. As a film, it's only fair, the leads are strong enough to keep it interesting. Well made but not very memorable. Lucille Ball is the best in the cast. I never felt Victor Mature was a strong performer, perhaps the film would have been better with say, Kirk Douglas or John Garfield.

    It is well known that Lucille Ball did not care to be known as just a wisecracking actress. Although critics were delighted with her brand of humor, she proves she was quite an actress. Here she takes the less showier of the female leads and reminds the audience whose in charge without having to try.

  • I have been looking for this movie forever!

    I saw this movie on TCM in the hospital when I was very ill, the day before Thanksgiving, and the music tunes have been stuck in my head ever since! It is a very good movie, the only one these 2 ever made together, and I am desperate to get it on DVD! Please help, TCM.
