Starts off well with the demotion of Paul Muni's character from editor in chief to Miss Lonelyhearts, a situation rife with comic possibilities. Unfortunately, director Mervin Le Roy and his scenarists choose to go in a much duller direction with some forgettable stuff about political corruption. Also largely abandoned is the great comedienne Glenda Farrell and in her place is put Ned Sparks, a pale alternative. As for Muni, this ol dramatic hambone is better than I thought he would be as a newspaper curmudgeon, although he's definitely no threat to Cary Grant or even Walter Connolly, for that matter. Give it a C plus.
I'll Watch Ned Sparks Anyday
Good movie,on a salute to Glenda Farell Day.Even Muni is tolerable
- Russell Brown
For once, Paul Muni's tendency to overact is suited to a role, surprisingly a comedy. The repartee between Muni and Glenda Farrell compares well with that between Jean Harlow and Spencer Tracy in Libeled Lady. They are well supported by experienced character actors such as Douglas Dumbrille and Donald Meek. The off-putting title turns out to be a great joke.
An expert comedian and character actor. . .

Ned Sparks has an important role; but even if he hadn't, any film's well worth watching if he's playing a role.
