Movies like this one kind of brain wash the audience into planning their next trip to New York and who knows? The singles might find love there or those growing cold towards one another would probably rekindle their romance.
The onscreen chemistry between Jim Hollis (Johnson)and Bunny Smith(Turner)produces a wonderful aroma(love is in the air), whereas the chemistry between Walter Pidgeon and Ginger Rogers lack a catalyst. They are both good, but...anyways, the love between Chip Collyer(Pidgeon) and Irene Malvern(Rogers) would grow on you as the movie progresses, so I guess the MGM people knew what they were doing.
