Not that I put too much weight on the IMDB ratings, the fact this film has an 8.3 is one of the main reasons I saw the film. My expectations were high, and unfortunately I can’t say the film lived up to them entirely. It was insane enough, but it doesn’t have the same joy as Hawks’ screwballs or even Sturges. Colbert stars as a broke chorus girl who ends up being paid with a millionaire to have an affair with his wife’s lover. The film has many delightful twists that are genuinly surprise. More than a few times I couldn’t help laughing out loud at the outrageousness of the situations. It really gets on it’s feet in the last half an hour, where the stakes are raised as Don Ameche becomes a more important force. Barrymore is underused again, I’m really going to have to find some of his silents because he is such a captivating presence on the screen. Overall it makes for a very enjoyable time, even though it isn’t quite remarkable.
