I watched these same 3 Ford comedies about a month ago. Judge Priest is virtually Doctor Bull, Part 2. Same style and pace. It's not terrible, but it's nothing I would want to see again. Rogers is always enjoyable, but the plot is paper-thin, and the version I saw had some bad sound issues. Plus, Judge Priest is one of the "1001 Movies to See Before You Die", so at least you'll have that one out of the way.

Until you get deluged with posts shocked you haven't seen OUATIA. :) <br><Br> I think you'll dig that flick Quint, there's several brilliant scenes that will just stick with you, and of course the great score.

I don't think I've ever seen a Will rogers film, either. Despite the mediocre review, I might put this one on my list, unless someone out there has a better recommendation. Another great comedy from the 1930s is Dinner at Eight. Jean Harlow's a lot of fun in it as well as a good cast of 1930s regulars - John & Lionel Barrymore, Marie Dressler (excellent), Billie Burke (Glinda) and others. Give it a try if you haven't seen it.

Sorry to nitpick, but I've seen this mistake in two AMADs, now. A widower is a man whose wife has died.

This sounds like the kind of film where they use actually use "widder" as in "Widder Johnson's already buried four husbands."

I think it just took him awhile to realize what he strengths and weaknesses as a director were. Plus, it wasn't like directors had complete freedom in those days - many times you were assigned a film. I imagine some executive acting like Richard Mulligan as Custer in Little Big Man "No John, you are a comedy director. Forgot this drama idea about an IRA informer and Westerns. I can tell, you have the appearance and posture of a comedy director."
