Mary Wickes, what a brilliant comic actress. Just saw her in a 1948 comedy called "June Bride" (starring Bette Davis & Robert Montgomery). Every scene Wickes in in, she makes better.

Bette, otoh, gives every indication of being forced to act by virtue of an off-camera rifle pointed at her head. One of the most remarkably obvious "f@*k-you" performances I've ever seen. And yet the movie is still enjoyable, thanks to Montgomery, and especially to the talented character actors. Like Mary Wickes.
