Audience Reviews for The Feminine Touch


Charming goofball comedy played by experts. Roz, looking great, is sassy and fun one of the greatest at the slow burn ever. This was Kay Francis' last part in an A level film and a shame since she is both humorous and chic. Her slide into low grade junk and obscurity within a few years of this is an example of the way Hollywood wastes talented performers once they are no longer as big at the box office. Ameche and Heflin's parts are not as good but they make them seem better than they.

This movie should be in the list of best classic screwball comedies, I don't know why it isn't. It's hilarious, the actors are great (starring: Rosalind Russell, Don Ameche, Kay Francis, and Van Heflin!) and the story is good too. I loved this movie, I'm glad I caught it on TCM. I highly recommend it.
