    It's rare to find a movie that doesn't have a happy ending. Also nice to have Carole Lombard in a role that doesn't have her playing a ditzy blonde. William Powell really got into this role as a hesitant con-man. At the end he's so ashamed of what he's done he can't look anyone in the face while he talks to them.

    Lombard's comic talents are wasted, as the role could have been played just as well by Norma Shearer, reprising her character from The Women. That's not, by the way, meant as a compliment.

    good premise, realistic portrayal of what probably would happen in such a scenario... lombard is as guileless as anticipated.

    I was expecting a lot more with Lombard and Powell. Huge disappointment. Bad, even by early talkie standards.
