Up in Mabel's Room (1944) Poster

Newly-married Gary Ainsworth once gave his former sweetheart Mabel a sexy negligee with his initials embroidered in the lacework. It is Gary's unenviable task to retrieve the incriminating undergarment from Mabel's room.

| A Small film...an a not particularly funny one.
"Up in Mabel's Room" is a comedy from Small Productions and it really left me frustrated...mostly because the leading lady is so easy to hate. To me, this was a deal-breaker...and I had a hard time enjoying this one.

When the film begins, Geraldine Ainsworth (Marjorie Reynolds) is upset that her brand new husband, Gary (Dennis O'Keefe), doesn't realize it's their 30 day anniversary. Obviously, this lady is tough to please...and as the film progresses you realize that Gary is married to a really awful lady! Why? Because although he seems like a nice guy, she's painfully jealous of him...so much so that she begins accusing him of being unfaithful to her. This is fed, in part, by her never seen mother--a woman who constantly phones Geraldine to tell her how much she hates Gary and how she KNOWS he's cheating on her. And, as a result, Gary jumps through many hoops in order to please this impossible to please lady. At this point, I guess I was thinking too much but it seemed to me Gary was married to an emotionally abusive woman...so much so I was rooting for him to leave and never come back. There's more to the film than that...but it had already lost me and I really hated the movie. The actors seemed to try hard...but the script really, really annoyed me and I couldn't wait for the film to end.
