Storyline

Renowned stage actors Basil Underwood and Joyce Arden are partners on and off the stage. An occupational hazard for Basil is that women often fall in love with what they see of him on the stage, he who sometimes indulges that adoration. Basil and Joyce's personal life is passionate and tempestuous characterized by constant fighting and making up, which is often continued on-stage under their breaths. After their latest fight and reconciliation, they decide to get married... for the twelfth time. They are determined to make it to the altar this time. But Basil feels he needs to wipe clean the slate first by doing a favor for a stranger, Henry Grant, whose fiancée has fallen in love with him. With his latest script in hand, Basil vows to make Henry's fiancée fall out of love with him by playing the cad.

Forgotten but Hilarious Screwball Comedy
1 July 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The fact that almost nobody has heard of or seen this movie doesn't diminish it's delightful comedy. Warner Brothers was hardly known for producing strong comedies, much less those starring Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland and Leslie Howard. After watching the fun Davis and Howard seem to be having, one wishes there were more of their comic performances to enjoy on film. De Havilland did make some other wonderful comedies at Warners (Strawberry Blonde, Male Animal) Passage of time continues to confirm her standing as probably the least celebrated best actress in Hollywood. She never achieved the "star status" of several lesser actresses. (You can make your own personal list.) Yet she continued to deliver outstanding, intelligent performances, displaying a tremendous range of ability. Check out "Light in the Piazza."

The supporting cast is also full of expert performances. Eric Blore's bird impersonations is hysterical!
