Some BIG BIG names in this one. Loretta Young, David Niven, Hugh Herbert. Billie Burke, Sir Aubrey Smith. and of course, my hero, the cynical, sarcastic Eve Arden! and of course Zasu PItts. In the story, Niven is Arturo, see-er of the future, and he is taken with Anita (Young). They travel around the world for Arturo's act, but Anita is getting sick of the road. Then Arturo takes on a dare, which risks his life. and Anita doesn't like it at all. Then he refuses to come off the road, and Anita is off to divorce court. Then they spend the rest of the film running into each other, antagonizing each other, if un-intentionally. The last twenty minutes are a bit annoying... Anita's new husband won't stand up for her, and he also lets his boss run all over him, even when Anita gets ill and wants to leave. A little disappointing.... with that great cast, I was hoping for more. It's all perfectly well done, but they all seem to be fighting for the spotlight. and the story kind of loses its way in the second half. we were supporting Anita when she was in love with, and married to the new husband, but then she doesn't seem to know who she wants, and if SHE doesn't know, why should WE care what happens? I hope it all gets worked out by the end. I can see why its not rated very high, even with all those big names. the ending is a little too abrupt and random. i wonder if the ending was changed along the way to suit audience preferences...
