Storyline

In the modern day (1920s) story, Adam, a plumber, is happily married to Eve, a wardrobe-obsessed housewife, until she accidentally meets a supercilious fashion designer. At the prompting of her neighbour, who has secret designs on Adam, Eve secretly becomes a fashion model by day, knowing that her husband would disapprove. This tale is book-ended by a sequence of the two principals in the Garden of Eden, having the same preoccupations amid the dinosaurs and boulders. Written by GoblinHairedGuy

early Hawksian comedy
26 September 2003 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

One of Howard Hawks's early efforts, this delightful comedy already presages many of the thematic concerns of his later masterpieces. The Garden of Eden bookends resemble a silent-era "Flintstones", with rocks and dinosaurs ingeniously serving modern bourgeois purposes. The contemporary section is a sophisticated comedy of manners, taking jabs at the evolving status of women and the never-changing essential obsessions of the sexes. George O'Brien expertly plays the idealized American male, and sidekick Heinie Conklin has several fine slapstick moments. The intertitle dialogue is also highly amusing.
