Did You Know?

Trivia

Although obviously not credited as such, this is very clearly a knock-off of George M. Cohan's play "Seven Keys to Baldpate," which RKO had just filmed the previous year. See more »

Goofs

Early in the movie, Mr. Layton (Porter Hall) has a large cigar in his mouth. The cigar moves from side to side as the camera angle changes. Much too fast and not in continuity with the scene. See more »

Quotes

Pat Quinn: With me by his side, he wouldn't get into jams!
Alice Merritt: When I was married to him, it was jam for breakfast, jam for lunch, and jam for dinner.

Chic But A Bit Raucous and Broad As It Goes On
3 December 2003 | by HandlinghandelSee all my reviews

This begins as a stylish, sophisticated comedy. George Brent is good as the debonair playwright/playboy who needs a third act for his new play. And Genevieve Tobin is -- throughout -- charming as the first of his ex-wives, who has been called in to help him with this project.

The proceedings get a little too hectic, though. Everyone is good, but the cat fights are raucous and the country bumpkin humor -- the title refers to his country house -- get tired.

Overall, though, definitely recommended for its two leads -- particularly for Ms. Tobin.
