Did You Know?

Trivia

Although obviously not credited as such, this is very clearly a knock-off of George M. Cohan's play "Seven Keys to Baldpate," which RKO had just filmed the previous year. See more »

Goofs

Early in the movie, Mr. Layton (Porter Hall) has a large cigar in his mouth. The cigar moves from side to side as the camera angle changes. Much too fast and not in continuity with the scene. See more »

Quotes

Pat Quinn: With me by his side, he wouldn't get into jams!
Alice Merritt: When I was married to him, it was jam for breakfast, jam for lunch, and jam for dinner.

That's snow business
3 January 2017 | by marcslopeSee all my reviews

Modest Warners comedy, a little over an hour and filmed essentially on one set, has playwright George Brent holed up in his Connecticut retreat struggling to come up with a third act, where he's visited by the first wife he still loves (Genevieve Tobin, who's charming and elegant), the second wife who wants her alimony (Glenda Farrell, who's a little too shrill and boisterous), and the kid who wants to be No. 3 (Patricia Ellis). Frank McHugh also shows up to arrest him, and a housekeeper who ought to be Clara Blandick but isn't helps out. It's so one-set that it seems to be derived from a stage farce, but isn't, and implausibilities pile up--if it's such a snowstorm, why are the roads so clear? How does Brent get over to the housekeeper's house? Why is everybody suddenly fainting? Gags, such as McHugh getting covered in snow, get overworked, and Ray Enright, never the most dynamic Warners director, doesn't make much of the slender material. But it's nicely shot, with particularly lovely snowbound exteriors, and the cast looks like it's having fun.
