The triangular tease of a jilted bride's pursuit of the man that got away, recognizing ultimately that her devotion is misplaced, and finally, aptly directed to her true heart's desire.
23 January 2002 | by (Southeastern coastal US) – See all my reviews

An ideal vehicle for Joan Crawford, and a role to which she applies herself consummately! The chemistry between Ms. Crawford and Clark Gable is palpable and registers like a blister. The ever-clever and witty Robert Montgomery is in fine form as the character of "Dill", and an apt foil for the combine of Ms. Crawford and Mr. Gable. I particularly enjoyed Frances Drake's portrayal of Connie, as her elegant piquancy in this characterization is right on the nose.
