    One of the best films I have ever seen and I have seen thousands of films ...I was so thrilled and loved the fine performances of the leading characters,,,so funny and they had a chemistry unlike anything you find today..I loved them both....genius.....I would love to own this film...Where can I buy it please......also the directing was excellent. I will always remember this very funny film, esp. the teacher.

    I have to watch this movie whenever its on the television - the subtle humor and wonderful performances by Edna May Oliver & James Gleason, while Gleason is great as the henpecked detective (a role his was often cast), Ms. Oliver plays a smart-aleck, wise-cracking school marm - a great difference of her normally 'proper' roles in other films.

    Fisety school teacher Edna May Oliver as Hildegarde Withers and James Gleason as Inspector Oscar Piper team up to solve the case in this charming 1932 adaptation of a Sturat Palmer mystery. David Selznick is the producer and Max Steiner provides the music, but it is the snappy dialog and humor with a touch of romance that makes this film a classic. This is the first and best of three in a series with two great characters actors in top form.
