This was June Allyson's first real starring role without another major female star in the film. The film was a big hit and proved to MGM she could carry a film. She remained a star for anther 15 years. See more »
When John Hill is trying to open the davenport that is supposed to fold out into a bed, it keeps closing on him, to comic effect. When he tries to spread a sheet over the mattress, the wire extending from the back of the davenport to the front edge that keeps pulling it closed is visible. See more »
The guy above summarizes and reviews the movie at the same time and I don't have much to add. The scenarios are basic stereo-types from their day. Walker and Allyson are generally good but Allyson's sniffles, sniffles technique she used throughout her career for emotionally impact can be grating. A MGM programmer that was a mild and successful hit. IN the end of this marital strife and farce, love conquers all. What would you expect?
