| The Title Characters Show Why Baby-boomers Often Have Miserable Parents
This is a very cogent argument for living together a while before marriage!

Robert Walker, very appealing (and extremely skinny looking when we see him chest-up in the bath tub) and June Alyson marry on impulse when he is -- well, he's the sailor and she becomes the wife.

Then he isn't a sailor anymore and they have to live in a large apartment in Greenwich Village, where they learn they have nothing in common and really don't like each other.

She wears her bunny rabbit "jammies" the night of their honeymoon; and really: What man wouldn't be frustrated at that?

The super of the building is Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, whom some tenants seem to call Eddie and some call Harry.

The generally great villain and excellent actress Audrey Totter is wasted in a third-billed role as a Romanian who speaks with an accent sometimes Russian, mostly French,m and, though she wears hats most of the time, appears to be wearing a black wig.

It isn't without charm. But it's ill conceived.
