Storyline

Clark Gable plays a card cheat who has to go on the lam to avoid a pesky cop. He meets a lonely, but slightly wild, librarian, Carole Lombard, while he is hiding out. The two get married after Lombard wins a coin flip and they move back to the city. Gable continues his gambling/cheating scheme unbeknownst to Lombard. When she discovers his "other life", she presures him to quit. Gable feels crowded and tells her that he is leaving for South America. In fact, Gable has decided he wants to go straight and turns himself in to the cop... Written by Jordan Caldwell <jcaldwell@tamu.edu>

Goofs

In the first five minutes of the movie, Babe takes a taxi. We get a very clear view of the front hood of the cab, with the telephone number of the cab company. One hour into the movie, Babe calls his wife with his new office phone number. He looks at the dial of his new phone, and gives her the telephone number of the cab company. See more »

Quotes

Connie: [to Babe about the lake party] It's too lonesome, no subway, no elevator... None of the rushing noise of the city.
[Dreamily]
Connie: Just pale moon, quiet lake, soft breeze, hardly rustling the pine leaves...
[Snaps back to reality and looks at Babe]
Connie: You'd be bored to death

Has its charms but not many
12 October 1999 | by (Edmonton, Canada) – See all my reviews

A lightweight comedy interesting for the sole pairing of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. Gable is a notorious card shark who falls for Lombard while on the lam in the small town of Glendale. They marry but their conflicting morals complicate matters. Mildly amusing. The fact that the film was made during the no production code period from 1930-34 means viewers can delight in seeing both stars in the shower (not at the same time) and Lombard in her undies.
