Thomas sure deserves better...
9 March 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

John Boles plays Thomas Bentley, a lawyer who seems like a genuinely nice guy. However, he doesn't realize that his wife is a pig...a pig rutting about with another man. Through the course of his job, Thomas meets a sweet lady, Camellia (Jean Muir). Now there is no romance involved...Thomas is a loyal husband...but the two hit it off. He also helps her to entertain some kids...in one of the strangest song and magic shows you could ever see...weird and creepy...yet the kids adore him. So where is all this heading and how will Thomas and Camellia come together in court? See the film.

This is a nice romance film. While it has some nice supporting actors which keep it all very light, the story takes a very serious turn as well. I'd say more, but I don't want to ruin the story. Just see this one...it's a very nice picture.
