Gable tries to solve a murder which might involve a friend of Bennett's
16 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clark Gable and Constance Bennett star in "After Office Hours," a 1935 film directed by Robert Z. Leonard. Gable is Jim Branch, the go-getter editor of a newspaper, who is hot on the trial of a society love triangle. Irritated with the music critic, Sharon Norwood (Bennett), he fires her, only to find out that evening that she is very good friends with all the parties. He then not so subtly tries to find out as much as he can. When the woman in the triangle is murdered, he's certain that he knows who did it - but since it's someone Sharon is close to, he's going to have a tough time of it.

Gable and Bennett make a great team, though how Sharon ever believed a word coming out Branch's mouth is beyond me. Bennett is beautiful with outfits that match her elegant looks, and Gable makes a pretty glib Jim

  • also an insincere one. One assumes Sharon was in love with him and


gave him the benefit of the doubt. You really couldn't blame her.

A delightful film with two wonderful stars.
