A Rather Weak Comedy
Frank Morgan reunites with Billie Burke---not long after "The Wizard of Oz"---to play a married couple in this attempt at screwball comedy that falls short due to a script that lurches from scene to scene.
The story revolves around a misunderstanding. Everyone thinks Vern Adams (Morgan) died in a sea tragedy. His unexpected return launches a series of deceptions that create a hectic pace but few genuine laughs.
The colorful cast is worth seeing, however. Especially Ann Rutherford, between Andy Hardy films, who plays the Adams' daughter. Unfortunately, she is underused despite her strong contribution to the film's only romantic storyline.
