Clark Gable & Deborah Kerr star in this romantic comedy from 1947. Gable is a returning GI who longs to get back into the radio advertising game & when an opportunity presents itself to have a prominent war widow pitch a soap product, he jumps at the chance falling in love w/her (& her 2 rugrats) in the process. Not especially successful as a romance (Kerr falls in love w/him too quickly) or an insightful treatise on the advertising biz (the way products are shoved down consumers faces whether they like it or not), what we're left w/is a bunch of reliable performers, which include Adolphe Menjou, Sydney Greenstreet & Ava Gardner, left afloat in a directionless story whose focus is as amorphous as a sure fire product line.
