At around 5 minutes into the film, Sally Reardon (Virginia Bruce) holds up her middle finger towards husband William Reardon (Melvyn Douglas), inadvertently flipping him the bird. At the beginning of the film Sally wakes up with a ribbon tied around her middle finger in order to remember something, but doesn't recall until a phone call during breakfast - that William had an important meeting at his office with his client Mr. Stone (Paul Harvey). As innocent as this seems, audiences in 1938 would most likely have known what that gesture really meant. If this scene aired on modern day broadcast television, her finger would be blurred out.

Before you start asking any questions, I better get you a glass of brandy.
Oh, I don't want any brandy. I'd just like to take my clothes off.
Go right ahead. I never argue with a lady.

Melvyn Douglas and Virginia Bruce are the Reardons, who get caught up in another murder mystery. This was the follow-up to There's Always a Woman. with some of the same supporting cast (Tom Dugan). Some tricky little methods of murder in this one. as usual, Bill Reardon runs circles around the other cops, the newsmen, and even the murderer's gang. and it's interesting to note that they dance around the word "pregnant"... Bill Reardon keeps saying "are you...." and "you mean you're not...." oh how times change. Directed by Alexander Hall, who had directed the first chapter. Pretty good stuff.
