In the opening scene, Mike takes the telephone from Barney and holds the handset upside down. He speaks into the receiver and holds the speaker with the cord extending from it up to his ear. See more »
This is a very good film and I enjoyed it very much. Joan Crawford, Clark Gable and Franchot Tone give great performances.
One of the highlights of this film is the delightful comedy cameo by that great character actor, Donald Meek as the batty caretaker at the Palace of Fontainebleu!! His scenes alone are priceless!! Don't miss this film, as it is a very good comedy--not so much a slapstick comedy, or a comedy that overdoes it with hammy performances, but it is a winner all the way!! Be sure and try to catch it next time it is on television--it is very good and you won't be disappointed from it!!
