William Wellman’s direction leaves no gag unpummeled, but this cynical 1942 comedy about a showgirl (Ginger Rogers) who confesses to a murder as a publicity stunt still has some dirty class. Nunnally Johnson wrote it, under the spell of The Front Page, and the plotline surfaced again as the musical Chicago. With George Montgomery, Lynn Overman, and Adolphe Menjou hiding his scales under a double-breasted suit. 75 min.
