I still remember laughing my hat off while watching this film during my early teen years.

Fun little movie isn't going to change the world, but it's cute. Ronald Coleman stars as a bookbody wanting to one up the soap company he recently applied for a job to. So he appears on the quiz program sponsored by the soap company and proceeds to get every question right, much to their chagrin. The best part of this is Vincent Price, way past his usual realm of horror, as the soap company kingpin. Pretty surreal, but not the best thing you'll see.

A lackluster comedy in which (Vincent Price) totally steals the show....

Cute comedy but rather thin and not worthy of the talents of the top lined trio. Points however for the audacity to name Celeste's character Flame.

One of my favourite 50s comedies, especially because of Price's performance, he's hilarious. The story is really clever and funny as well, and Colman is the perfect choice to play the main character. If you're a fan of either of them, I highly recommend checking out this movie.

Too Happy Ending
The Beginning Narrative
Somewhat Dated

This was a fun screwball comedy. Vincent Price was very funny in this movie as the comic villian playing the eccentric owner of Milady Soap, Bumbridge "Dirty" Waters. Ronald Colman play Beauregard Bottomley, a snobbish scholar, to the hilt. When on screen together Price and Colman played quite well of each other. The rest of the cast did well and certainly added to all the madcap antics. From the Quiz Show host to Bottomley's spinster sister and his own romantic interest, a hired plant by "Dirty" Waters to thwart and sabotage Bottomley's attempts to bankrupt Milady Soap. A fun movie that moves briskly and works well. At times it is very dated, especially in the set pieces. And the all too happy ending was a somewhat bitter pill to swallow and certainly detracted from the film somewhat.

Classic screwball comedy with some hints of surrealism.

Interesting, a bit dated now, but that is part of it's charm today. it's like a slice of life from the early television era. Ronald Coleman gives an admirable performance. The supporting cast is particularly good, especially Vincent price. Good natured fun.
