| J Leigh on her way to the big time
I was never really impressed with peter lawford, but here, he's a rich playboy Mark MacLene. he has a family trust fund, but unfortunately he spends it faster than he gets it! Janet Leigh is Lucy, the loud, pushy, ferocious advocate. Lewis Stone is the Judge, who suggests that Lucy act as trustee to MacLene, to help curtail his spending. hijinx ensue. it's a grand caper. Richard Anderson, better known as "Oscar Goldman" from Six Million Dollar Man, is in here as Tom. and Ida Moore is the landlady... we saw her in "Desk Set", in a tiny little role. Lots of talking here. this one takes a while to get going. in one scene, they are theoretically in hawaii.... but there is quite an echo when they talk. One of the first films directed by Don Weis. It's okay. with all that talking going on, it feels like this started out as a play. it's okay.
