This is a quality MGM production. Overall, the film is pleasing and entertaining. The script plays it safe by suggesting female equality but allowing the hero to win the woman's heart by the end of the movie.

Edna May Oliver is, as always, the bright spot in the movie. No one can toss off a carefully crafted bon mot like Miss Oliver. Walter Pidgeon plays what amounts to a talking "Ken Doll". Maureen O'Sullivan is stunningly beautiful. This film shows that she has a far greater range than playing "Jane" in the MGM Tarzan movies.

The weak point in the film is the script which is Generic MGM - any number of Actors and Actresses could have played these roles.
