Silly Thin Man clone is made quite palatable by breezy Blondell, flummoxed Douglas, sly Astor.
alot of WB 'regulars' show up in this nick n nora knock-off mystery drama.
Average mystery comedy excels as a Joan Blondell vehicle. A few nice quirks and surprises. Can't picture the sequel without Joan.
Mystery-comedy propelled by the bouncy Joan Blondell at her best, golden curls flopping about with every sudden movement. Melvyn Douglas makes a fine foil as her private detective husband who sorely wants his old job back with the D.A. after a bad run of luck with his own private agency. Becomes plot-heavy in the final third, bogging down an otherwise jolly whodunit.
Caught this at a Joan Blondell Retrospective. It is marvelous. The pacing never lets up and she is a wonder. In terms of film, it's very static, very stagy but it allows Blondell and Douglas to take over the sapce and since the camera never moves you don't miss a pratfall.
