Extraordinarily funny and is one of the BEST romantic screwball comedies from the 1930's. This film is comparable and stands the test of time such as"It Happened One Night". Quirky characters and a delightful cast including Billie Burke and Constance Bennett. They don't make 'em like they used to is an appropriate phrase concerning this film. Listen closely as the quick-witted writing shines through. The name of the two dogs,"Get off the rug" and "You too", are as creativity at its best. The individuality of each character's quirkiness as they interact with one another with acceptance is fantastic. I first viewed this movie 20 plus years ago and have not forgotten its quality and humanity factor. Waiting for a DVD release date and hoping for the powers that be to produce this fabulous film in DVD format just cannot be too much to ask.
