Best scene in the film for me was when three characters in the film hang out, poke fun at each other, and wax grotesque philosophies. That gets a star and the fact there is a character named and referred to as Dude gets another star. Otherwise, this was an extremely odd duck of a film wherein the Lady for the Day disappears for what felt like half the film. Very strange and incredibly weak dialogue from Riskin.
Take The Great Depression, unknown actors, snippets of Pygmalion, and you have a Capra film that is part "senior citizen Cinderella." With cinematography that resembles the silent era, believable performances, and low-key comedy, this is a delightful film that leaves you with a smile.
