"The Feminine Touch" (1941) -- overlooked comic gem

I'm not going to call this W.S. Van Dyke film starring Don Ameche, Rosalind Russell, Kay Francis and Van Heflin a top-tier romantic comedy, but it is rather engaging, with a smart script and sly playing from the leads. Russell is great as per usual in screwball, and Ameche is effective (Roz and Don here are sort of a poor man's Powell and Loy). Kay Francis shines as well; one wishes that instead of largely being wasted at Warners in the middle and late thirties, riding out her contract, she had gone someplace else -- Columbia, RKO, Paramount -- where her comedic skills could have flourished.
