| Just misses being a pre-Code classic
This is a highly entertaining film that just misses being a pre-Code era classic. Doug Jr. is a Broadway columnist and Tracy his sidekick in this comedy-melodrama told in Wellman's odd straight-ahead style. Doug's a winning hero, and Frances Dee perfect as a truly sexy, selfish bitch who could string anyone along. Warren Hymer is better than usual as a doofus who's nonetheless fairly quick witted. Tracy is a bit muted, but, as always, is a joy to watch. In this cynical world, the high road is NOT doing an expose of milk price-fixing. The wise-cracks are plentiful and fun, but they don't quite jump up off the paper.
