The movie itself is stagy and stuffy. But Ina Claire is brilliant. Her performance defines a manner of acting that dominated comedies through the 1960s.
It is easiest, perhaps, to see Connate Bennett as someone in her mold. Irene Dunne was too, and it's interesting to note that Claire made a silent version of "The Awful Truth."
Others who seem to have either imitated or been directed to emulate her include Margaret Sullavan, Alice Brady, Eve Arden, and even Arlene Francis (the only salvation of the dreadful "One, Two, Three.")
Myrna Loy is saucy as the other woman but Claire dominates the proceedings.
