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.

Not so easy to buy Edward Everett Horton as a paramour
21 September 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

During the Depression a lot of plays on Broadway folded because folks could not afford tickets, some good plays, some bad plays and some in between. I would categorize the work that Easy To Love is based on as one of those in betweens. Hollywood bought a lot of flop plays dirt cheap in those days.

It took five years from Broadway to Hollywood for Easy To Love to be made. Warner Brothers B picture unit made this one with a B picture cast consisting of Adolph Menjou and Genevieve Tobin as a married couple who are getting a bit stale. He's stepping out with Mary Astor so she decides to retaliate by doing a little stepping with Edward Everett Horton. That's the biggest problem with Easy To Love, buying Horton as a paramour.

The talented cast takes this very thin material and breathes some life into it. I'm sure Easy To Love played on the second bill with many a Warner Brothers picture with their major stars. It's all right, but nothing to rush out and see on your own.
