NO TIME FOR COMEDY (1940) B/W 93m dir: William Keighley

w/James Stewart, Rosalind Russell, Genevieve Tobin, Charles Ruggles, Allyn Joslyn, Louise Beavers

From Variety's contemporary review of the film: "S.N. Behrman's Broadway success starred Katharine Cornell. Rosalind Russell, in the same part, endows it with skill equal to that of her predecessor. Combined with a deftness for handling comedy and a class type of beauty which is plenty well demonstrated right here, Russell emerges as a player of unusual dignity and authority.

"Stewart is pretty much the same Mr. Smith who went to Washington [referring to Stewart's hit of the previous year, MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON]. Cast in a role which was obviously tailored to his measure, he is top-notch in the characterization of the boyish playwright from the sticks who arrives in Manhattan with a map after detouring by way of the Grand Canyon because there was an excursion train running there."
