Time Out says

Thorne Smith's novel about a dull banker (Young) haunted by dashing ghosts (Bennett and Grant) proved popular enough as a film to spawn two sequels and a TV series. Now it seems an archetypal piece of cinematic fluff from the '30s - too gentle and leisurely to survive as a solid classic, though there's pleasure to be found in the cast's graceful way with comedy and their smooth ensemble playing.

Nemesis7293

Brilliant comedy-fantasy and archetypal example of the exquisite and particular 30's art form, the scewball comedy. One of the greatest films of the 30's which is saying a great deal. It is perfection in virtually every aspect....performance, script, direction. The special effects are lovely with not a single wire visible. Roy Seawright was indeed a genius. The humor is memorable not only for being hysterically funny, but also for being amazingly bitchy and vulgar for th era......one of the main plot points is a pair of sexy panties and what they mean. The very definition of classic, it relates as beautifully today as it did in 1937.
