I always found this movie almost Disney-esque. It seems geared toward children. 

I will probably offend people by saying this, but I've never seen much subtlety in Ginger Rogers's acting. I love her movies, though. She is reliable as a comedienne. This movie really goes over the top in silliness when she is trying to act young and naïve (after drinking the "youth serum").

I have a fellow movie buff coming over today. We may watch this together, as I haven't seen it in a long time.

Does anyone know who that kid is with the really deep voice (in the scene where the kids are playing Indians)?

That's George 'Foghorn' Winslow.

Rogers only got her childlike scene after insisting on it after realizing Grant got one.  Hawks felt it hurt the movie.

I agree with Hawks. But my friend and I did watch it last night, and it was fun.

I'll have to look up that child actor. Thanks for the name, Mickey. I have a feeling I've seen him in some other movies.

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
