Storyline

Carol feels, for whatever reason, that her husband, John, has grown indifferent to her, and is on a quest to find out why, suspecting another woman. She sees the family physician, Dr. Swope, first and then hires a private detective. Her own sleuthing is more effective and she devises a plan; having long been pursued by Eric, she apparently accedes and accompanies him to an apartment and, per her plan, enter the wrong one. There, they find Carol's best friend, Charlotte, and John hiding in a closet. The latter, showing more nerve than good sense, goes into a rage and berates Carol for her apparent philandering. The battle continues at home, where their daughter Janet informs them that because of them, she and Paul have given up on the idea of marriage, but are going away together, anyway. Carol and John trail them to a hotel and find them in twin beds, whereupon John, armed with a fire-ax, summons a justice of the peace and demands a fire-ax version of a shotgun wedding.

And to Like and, Probably, to Forget
9 May 2006 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

A racy pre-Code comedy with a superb cast. Adolph Menjou and top-billed Genevieve Tobin are bored with their marriage. Menjou is stepping out with Mary Astor. (And who wouldn't? Tobin is a charming actress. But Astor is divine here. Her comic timing presages her performance in "The Palm beach Story." Less plausibly, Tobin is having a romance with -- ready? -- Edward Everett Horton. He was a delightful comic character actor. But the type to make a husband jealous? It's hard to imagine.

Charming Patricia Ellis is Tobin and Menjou's daughter. Her boyfriend is played by attractive Paul Kaye -- a name I'd never heard before watching this.

Hugh Herbert turns up as a private detective with a Scottish burr. His name is McTavish, and like everyone in this charming but not awfully original movie, he's very good.
