Most of their friends see Tony as the perfect wife in her unending support of Jim. What could rock their world is that Jim's ex-fiancée, proverbial man eater Fran Harper, the sister of one of their friends Jud McCrae, he and his wife Bee McCrae who don't much like her, has just gotten a Reno divorce and is said to be on her way back to cause trouble as Fran has not yet made the divorce public, but once it hits the media, it will lead to a circus atmosphere for Jim and by association Tony in the scandal all over again of Fran having left Jim at the altar six years ago, the full story of which Tony is unaware. Fran does end up coming back, bringing along with her a poor cad named Mort Holmes, who she picked up at a speakeasy along the way. Fran has indeed come back to cause trouble, more specifically to steal Jim away from Tony for her own selfish ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

When Fran and Jim kiss for the first time, the camera pans down and then focuses a watch worn on Jim's left wrist. However, from the perspective of the character, the watch is being worn upside down - but is probably shown this way to the camera so we can see what time it is easier, as in the very next shot the camera pulls back on another wristwatch worn by another character to indicate the passage of time.

Well Dunne
7 December 2007 | by jamdonahooSee all my reviews

This is a pot boiler from the thirties but is worth seeing because of Irene Dunne. She had the most impeccable comedic timing of any actress. Nominated for best actress five times she never won an Oscar, a real injustice. The Academy never honored her with a lifetime achievement award either. The script is witty and somewhat daring for its time. There is implied adulterous sex. I enjoyed seeing Charles Starrett in a supporting role. He later became famous in B westerns as the Durango Kid. Sidney Blackmer was also featured and he is best remembered as Roman Castevets the warlock in Rosemary's Baby. Take a bite of this confection; it is short sweet and to the point.
