Great Cast that must works with a goofy script. I can understand why it was a hit back in 1940. The plot is progressive and optimistic, two characteristics very lacking in a modern audience. It's just a fun little movie that showcases the talents of every cast member.
rather hokey situation to wrap its self into when all it could have been was a romance between the main cast the way the film first starts. Things and character are dropped in the audience lap for no reason and the mystery indentity surprise was just a waste of writing. The only highlight of the film is the ever delightful Harry Devenport as the judge.
Rogers and Colman provide some spark to a genial but silly romantic comedy. Gets off to a slow start with a dubious premise, gains a little momentum in the middle, then ends with a completely ludicrous and extremely slow courtroom scene.
