| This likable teaming deserved better material
I love seeing George Brent teamed with Bette Davis and according to a Davis biography, she also loved being paired with this amiable actor. So I began watching the film with high hopes--expecting to like the film. Well, although I didn't dislike the film, I certainly didn't like it all that much due to terrible writing and some ridiculous situations they placed these hapless actors in with this film. I won't even try to explain the stupid plot--it's THAT difficult to believe! So what we are left with are two excellent actors trying their best with drivel. As a result, it's good drivel, but drivel nevertheless. If you are a huge Bette Davis fan (like me), then see this film. Otherwise, it's very skip-able and only a time passer.

By the way, films like this one are the reason that Ms. Davis walked out on her contract with Warner Brothers. She reasoned, quite naturally, that after becoming an Oscar winner for Best Actress in DANGEROUS (1936) and being nominated for OF HUMAN BONDAGE (1934), she'd get better scripts--which she didn't. Despite the walkout, she was eventually forced to return to work, but somehow Warner got the point and began giving her better material over the next couple years. Looking at this dull film, I am glad she walked out for better films!
