Storyline

Waldo and Irene have been living with Margit for the four years that they have been engaged. Margit has planned the wedding and the honeymoon - in fact, Margit plans everything down to what they will have for breakfast every day. The only problem is that Waldo is a milquetoast and Irene does not want to be married to a milquetoast. So she says she is in love with Charlie, a bohemian artist/producer who lives in a trailer behind Spike's Place. When Margit confronts Charlie about giving up Irene, Charlie sees that she is the one for him. To make everyone happy, Charlie will have to help Waldo get a backbone.

Trivia

When Margit, played by Myrna Loy, asks Mr. Keough to spy on Charlie, Keough interrupts her and says he thinks he understands. He believes (incorrectly) that the gentleman is blackmailing her and that he probably has some compromising letters of hers - they are likely innocent enough but could be misconstrued. His specific and off-the-mark supposition matches the major plot point of Evelyn Prentice nearly perfectly; Myrna Loy played the title character in that film. See more »

Goofs

In a scene near the end that takes place in William Powell's trailer, an Oscar statuette is visible in the background standing on a white shelf. In the next shot, the statuette is on top of a black box that is on the white shelf. The following shot has the Oscar back on the white shelf. A few moments later, the statuette is knocked over, and is seen toppling from on top of the black box again. See more »

Quotes

Claire Lodge: If you want to keep Charlie in love with you, don't try to change him. Just make up your mind you're in an asylum. And married to the head lunatic.

Absolutely delightful, hilarious.
13 June 2002 | by dave387See all my reviews

A very funny, romantic movie. I enjoyed all the little creative pieces of "business" and lines such as "...you rang my gong." I enjoyed the treat of Sidney Toler as Keough.

I enjoyed the beautiful, wonderful cars of the 1930s, and the background scenes of beautiful, wonderful downtown Los Angeles of the '30s and into the 1950s. I was born there in 1934 and remember it well when it was a beautiful place to live. Ah, nostalgia!! This is what it really did look like then.
