A “zany comedy” recommended by the library’s blog, this was a bit slow (as befitting a movie made 70 years ago) and I enjoyed Ginger Roger’s slightly dingy main character. Having only seen her with Fred Astaire, I was intrigued to see her on her own. I wasn’t happy with the ending, but a movie that is about three generations out of my own expereince isn’t probably going to have the same idea of “happy ending” as I do.
p.s. Warner Archive. It’s nice that you’ve re-released this and all, but could you at the very least fix the wild fluctuation in sound? And maybe those of our hearing-impaired friends would like the movie. If only there was some closed captioning. How much would that have cost, really?
