I liked this DVD. If you like the 1940-1950 comedies, you will like this movie. The script was strong. It was well acted. I like the actors.

I don't know if I have ever seen Jean Arthur in anything before, but I absolutely fell in love with her. She was the perfect comedienne- charming, funny and endearing. She is absolutely adorable! Very entertaining movie. Cary Grant is my absolute favourite. He can never do any wrong by me. Also, I was unfamiliar with Ronald Colman. He was very charming as well, even though, he played a stuffy professor. I love his voice! Overall, I was very pleased by this film.

3 stars who all work perfectly to make an outstanding movie. Jean Arthur has a room to rent, the trouble is she books it to not one but two men. Those men are Cary Grant and Ronald Colman and Jean Arthur tries to keep them from knowing about the other. All of the cast can be quite funny, especially Jean Arthur. It is always good to see good actors get a great script and make it into a sensational movie! This is a Five Star Classic Film!

Director George Stevens has his hands full with a cast of Cary Grant, Jean Arthur and Ronald Colman. Each is perfectly cast in their roles. Jean Arthur has two rooms to rent. The first goes the Colman as Professor Lightcap. He is stuffy and rather dull as a professor might be. Along comes as escaped prisoner who was falsely charged with murder. Only Jean Arthur could pull off so many sight gags that come into play when she tries to hide Cary Grant from Ronald Colman. This may be the best role Jean Arthur ever had and she made the most of it. I have always enjoyed her high pitched voice, cute smile and innocent look. She can say a lot with just her smile. A great movie that you will surely want to see. KCLS has 3 copies and at this moment only one copy is with a patron. Please feel free to leave me a comment on how you like the film. I am rather confident you will be pleased. Thanks!!

Good classic movie. Love the classics. I am a Ronald Colman fan. Have seen several of his movies. He is very good in Random Harvest with Greer Garson.

Cary Grant and Jean Arthur. How can it be bad?
