Misses Oliver & Burke Spark Forgotten Screwball Comedy
18 December 2000 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

A once affluent Santa Barbara family, hounded by persistent creditors, hope to rejoice `WE'RE RICH AGAIN' if they can marry their oldest daughter off to a very wealthy twit. Then a pretty little country cousin shows up to complicate everything...

This sadly neglected screwball comedy from the 1930's offers manifold delights arising from its farcical plot & wonderful cast. Only a decade of over-abundant cinematic riches could afford to forget a perfectly fine film such as this. While not a great classic of its genre, such as BRING UP BABY or NOTHING SACRED, it still has much amusement to offer the lucky viewer.

Edna May Oliver & Billie Burke, both unforgettable & utterly irreplaceable, are delightful as the two stars of the film. Wisecracking, polo-playing granny Oliver, frequently found in the company of her gaggle of young men, utters sardonic comments on the plot & the behavior of the other characters. Vague, fluttery Burke, perpetually in a state of mental abstraction, adds her own brand of kookiness to the story line.

Olympic medalist Buster Crabbe is hilarious, spoofing himself as a champion swimmer who wears nothing but swimming trunks the entire film, even while attending a fancy garden wedding. Edgar Kennedy, as a process server unable to proceed past the driveway, gets to display his famous 'slow burn' to great advantage.

The other supporting players (Reginald Denny, Grant Mitchell, Marian Nixon & Joan Marsh) all ably assist with the general pandemonium.
