Primrose Path

A likeable social comedy from the talented La Cava (for whom Rogers had given such a fine performance in the earlier Stage Door). Ginger's the girl from the wrong side of the tracks - morally rather than financially, coming as she does from a family of prostitutes and drunkards - who loses her respectable hubby McCrea, ambitious proprietor of a hamburger stand, when he finally gets to meet her parents. The romance and the attempts at seamy realism don't really mesh smoothly enough, but the performances and civilised direction make the unusual subject highly watchable.
