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

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.
