Did You Know?

Trivia

MGM studio chief Louis B. Mayer quickly rushed this movie into production to cash in on the popularity of the newly discovered Greer Garson, who had just triumphed in Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939). But despite this, the movie was a box office dud, and was all but forgotten until finding a new life on television, where it has remained a favorite for 60 years. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the film, when Jeff and Linda are pulled over by the motorcycle cop, in the long shot, their car has a tall, fancy, sculpted radiator cap. But in the closer front (studio) shot, it is missing - as it would have probably obscured Greer Garson's face. When they subsequently arrive at the judges house, the ornate radiator cap is back in place. See more »

A spotless mind is intuitive
28 March 2006 | by capnboffoSee all my reviews

Fairly mundane, but foreshadows "sunshine of the spotless mind" fifty years ahead. Acting is charming. Script amusing if labored. I did find myself chuckling from time to time. Any attempt at building a real story usurped by "Thin man style" drunk acts of principals. Billie Burke is a highlight and the plot device of the erased memories is fun. The directing seems to be the problem here as the movie never reaches a strong comedic pace necessary for the screwball underpinnings. Lots of fun moments that don't add up to any kind of structural pay-off, not a bad movie just fails to be a great one. if you like screwball the elements are here. If you have seen the great ones here is one to understand what makes the others great. Maybe Charlie Kauffman stuck this baby in his subconscious for the gimmick idea of memory loss through which kismet repeats its destiny. Lew Ayres seems like an earlier version of Jack Lemmon.
