A beautiful Carole Lombard and a handful of funny moments are all I can give this movie. Otherwise its an anger-inducing piece of shit whose which could've only inspired Hitchcock to make better movies later. The characters and the story duke it out for the title of What Sucks More and I'm not entirely sure of who won. I need to go watch an actually good screwball comedy to wash the taste of this one out of my mouth.
Film molto raro nella filmografia di Sir Alfred,che si cimenta nella commedia con buoni risultati,certo senza raggiungere picchi esplorati in passato.Cmq il ritmo è passabile,i due attori sono simpatici,i tempi al solito perfetti(alla Lubitsch) e la trama abbastanza coraggiosa per i tempi.Non è invecchiato molto bene,ma resta una pellicola da considerare se non altro per l'originale scelta del suo autore.
Hitchcock said he just shot exactly what was in the script for this movie and it appears to be true. I personally enjoyed this comedy, but it might be largely due to the performances of the two lead actors. There are some nice Hitchcock touches though, several of off-screen Lombard hysteria(!), footsies shots, and the witty final shot that will make Lubitsch smile.
How cute was Carole Lombard? She died so young she was only in a handful of good films, this is one of them, though there isn't much to suggest it was anything other than an assignment for a bored Hitchcock.
