Silly junk is harmless enough but one of the scripts that made Bette, by this point an Oscar winner, see red and walk out on her contract leading to her court fight with Warners and the beginning of her climb to becoming the fifth Warner brother and their top star.
I thought it was funny, endearing, clever, and of course, classic Davis. The storyline took a while to reveal the big secret, which was effective, and the improbability of the ending was sweet. Excellent direction, staging, and lighting. A-
Minor Bette Davis film from the early 1930's, it's a romantic comedy, and touches of melodrama. She is paired with frequent co-star George Brent. Typical of the period, but Davis' presence makes it worth looking into. Good support from Eugene Pallette.Amusing, predictable, but very entertaining.
