"This is one of those little movies of the '40s you don't hear much about. A cute, minor screwball type comedy with Stu Erwin as a character who mistakenly thinks he's got only four months to live & tries to make provisions for his family for after his untimely demise. This all initiates after a visit from the doctor's office in which Stu's character Henry overhears a conversation between his doctor & his receptionist/nurse that the patient hasn't long to live. Henry not having caught the beginning of the conversation assumes he's the patient they're referring to.
The film also has George O'Hanlon who appeared in The Life of Riley series as Riley's neighbor Calvin Dudley, briefly after Tom D'Andrea left the show to pursue a potential role in another series which didn't pan out & subsequently returned to the show. Irene Ryan as the housekeeper was a nice addition to the ensemble cast as well as Glenda Farrell as Henry's wife. All-in-all, if you like simple comedy fare from the golden age of cinema & appreciate such offerings, this is a good recommendation."
