Hubbard is a partner with Menjou and Gargan in a major advertising agency. He's married to Landis, and the pair are always fighting about their respective roles and what the other really should be doing. An ancient Indian god that sits on their mantle hears this argument just once too often, so--presto changeo--the two personalities switch bodies. She discovers what he does at work all day, almost destroying the agency in the process. It's the same at home when an afternoon tea nearly turns into a disaster. Though there are a few chuckles, the presentation is predictable slapstick and takes much longer than need be to get to the main point. The performances aren't bad, though, and the budget allowed for some handsome looking sets. It's based on a novel by the same man who wrote the basis for TOPPER. leave a comment
