STUDIO: 20th Century Fox
RUNNING TIME: 79 minutes
MARILYN MINUTES: 3 minutes
A still gorgeous grandmother (Claudette Colbert) divorces her husband Hugh (MacDonald Carey) because he's a compulsive gambler. Their daughter (Barbra Bates) does all she can to get them back together, but problems arise when Victor (Zachery Scott), Mom's high school sweetheart - turned millionaire - suddenly arrives in town. Even though a breathtaking beauty (Marilyn Monroe) is hot on his trial, Vic only has eyes for "Grandma" - driving ex-husband Hugh to the brinks of comic insanity as he wages a wild and unforgettable battle to win his wife back.
be honest I really didn't watch the whole movie. I just fast forwarded to
see Marilyn. It is so brief and the role so typical (a pretty blonde decoration)
that I really wouldn't recommend this movie as one of the first ones to get.
Review: Hollywood Reporter
"Marilyn Monroe is volumputously amusing as a girl on a husband hunt."
