Fun starts confusingly but mood warms up as footage unfolds and plot line becomes clear. Robert Young has been divorced by Barbara Hale after being caught in a compromising spot. It’s a hurry-up Reno untying and Hale is ready to do a quick re-bound marriage when she faints on the way to the altar. Pregnancy is the diagnosis. This upsets wedding plans with Robert Hutton and complications also develop when Young announces he’ll fight for partial custody.

Young is his usual able self in taking care of his part of the footage. Hale delights as the wouldbe mother. Henry Levin’s direction gets good movement into the script and comedy touches are neatly devised.
