    I agree with the previous reviewer, snappy dialogue, tons of fun. I was surprised at how funny and entertaining this was. And they really did look like a comic strip of the era, think it was Mr. and Mrs. Jiggs.

    Dear Movie-goer: Leonard Malton is wrong. Whether 87 or 100 minutes, this movie is not overlong. You will want more. It ends at the appropriate moment, a very satisfying moment, and the build-up, including Eric Blore's recounting the travails of Robert the Bruce and the spider, allows an efficient and proper pace. It is unfortunate the title seems trivial. The story itself is dignified and intelligent, with a goodly touch of humor per Benchley and Blore. The core, however, is the light drama between Montgomery's character and Evans, a man of charm and intelligence in persuit of a beautiful but head-strong woman already enamoured to a lord of the British royalty. Atypically, our Lord Priory is a good and chivalrous chap, which makes it all the more difficult. And the plot itself puts Montgomery at further disadvantages which I must not go into. In brief the deck is well stacked against Montgomery and how he wins in the end is a fabulous tour de force on his part. Not to ignore the delightful fact the person playing Montgomery's father, Frank Morgan, is at the same time facing his own difficulties wooing Evans' sister (Billie Burke), and so I conclude by saying the movie is well worth watching even if just for these two excellent and well-known actors.

    75/100. What a stellar supporting cast, Eric Blore, Billie Burke Frank Morgan, Cora Witherspoon and Robert Benchley. All are excellent, especially Benchley and Blore. Robert Montgomery is quite good as well. Amusing story, and like all MGM productions at that time, it is sublime. Light, funny and very entertaining.

    Why this film isn't shown more often is something that only the programmer's know. It is, without doubt, one of the brightest comedies to ever come out of MGM. The cast sparkles with Robert Montgomery keeping right up there with the ever humourous Frank Morgan and Eric Blore. Madge Evans and Montgomery are a natural in this, their fifth and final film together. It is easily their best. Finally, this film version of the book, while altering the story to some degree, is faithful to the characters and is equally impelling to the viewer. On a scale of five... this is a five.
