Critics reviews

Impossible to tell what damage the recasting and rewriting may have done. Archainbaud’s directorial slackness is a more directly evident problem. But Sturges’ construction shines through: apart from his mastery of comic dialogue and whiplash-inducing tonal shifts, he was always a genius at plot, blasting his climaxes with wildly implausible twists that always turn out to have been prepared from the start.
