My Life with Caroline (1941)with Anna Lee

As lightweight as Lucky Partners but unfortunately not very amusing, Caroline tells the story of an airheaded young woman who just can't stop flirting with men other than her husband...and when that husband is Ronald Colman, it just doesn't make sense.

Colman strives valiantly to give his role a suitably ironic detachment - he repeatedly arrives at the scenes of Caroline's dalliances in time to bring her back into the fold. One soon begins to root for him to not even bother.

As Bosley Crowther of The New York Times put it: "Things have come to a pretty pass certainly when Ronald Colman has to work to hold on to his lady as laboriously as he does here....Let's call it time ill spent and draw the curtain quietly thereon."
