This is an exquisitely played, deeply moving comedy-drama. It is a happy combination of young love, sharp cleancut humor and tear-jerker. David O. Selznick’s production leaves no sagging at the seams.

Picture is noteworthy in that it provides Carole Lombard with virtually her first straight dramatic role. She makes the newlywed Jane Mason a sincere young wife who struggles valiantly through all obstacles to save her newborn baby and make her husband amount to something.

James Stewart as the struggling lawyer who passes up his boss’ daughter for a love match dominates the droll moments, but displays further development in the more dramatic sequences.

Story of idyllic young love and sudden marriage, with familiar burdens and in-laws, is not new but the human and ingenious way it is projected makes it appear entirely different.
