Wyler knows what to do with any material, even one as antipersuasive as this one. Maybe the material is too washed up (they don'r commit crimes ans are too moderated in the end), buy doesn't lack subtlety and some humour in the Marjorie Main and her tomboy daughters part. Cooper is miscasted against McGuire.
