    Classic stuff that's still funny and entertaining. It's the sort of film that made me feel happy just from watching it. It's more of a series of sketches of comedy and romance, but the story hangs together once you accept the comedy logic of farces. Stanwyck and Fonda are both brilliant here and all the actors put in excellent support (particularly the horse!). 4 years 6 months ago

    The second half was a bit weeker than the first one on the boat. I really like those dialogues, only Hollywood love is rather...problematic imo. More than solid overall. 6 years 3 months ago
