The neon sign over the gaming establishment is Play Palace, but the sign painted on the glass over the front door is Play Place, both identifications appearing in the same shot, at the same time, as the couple drives out with their new car. This identical shot, but shortened to end before the car appears, is used again in Third Finger, Left Hand, also starring Myrna Loy who apparently visits the Play Palace again, this time with Melvyn Douglas.

This movie presents some good ideas about the manner of living life. The characters ably portrayed the pulls and tugs of living safely versus serendipity. It also demonstrates a good working relationship between people in a marriage who are working together as a team. How often is honesty between people present in real life?
Cinematography, costumes, and sets rate at least a B if not higher, so I can not imagine the source of disapproval unless it is with the ideas presented. But of these things, even the millionaire steel company owner approved. Whether or not other reviewers saw these things, I can not tell.
