Having a bad day? Watch a Capra film. Guaranteed to lift you up.The man had a gift for lighthearted comedies and he was an endearing story teller. I have yet to watch one of his gems that I would not return to again and again. He excelled at his craft. Cooper and Arthur were terrific in this one.

Very interesting, no dawdling, well focused.

This is a 1936 American screwball comedy directed by Frank Capra.
All the actors are overacting.
It's not that funny.
When four men do an echo-voicing, that looks profoundly stupid and foolish---far from funny.
This comedy is way under standard---if not a flop.
