| Coburn -- Who needs More?
Charles Coburn takes the title role of this trifle of a romantic comedy and, with the exception of good supporting roles by Ernest Truex and Russell Gleason is the whole show. Certainly, James Craig and Anne Shirley as the juveniles, go through their roles competently, but there isn't much to them.

Charles Coburn: a fat, swag-bellied, slow moving con man, vaguely contemptuous of everyone, had a long career in Hollywood, peaking in the early 1940s in pieces like THE LADY EVE and THE DEVIL AND MISS JONES (both produced in the same year as this picture) and THE MORE THE MERRIER, which this resembles in story structure. His presence makes this movie worthwhile.
