Storyline

Ann Adams and William Hayward get married and she has a secretary's job in a law office, while finishing her schooling, and she soon makes junior partner and is just a brilliant lawyer. Meanwhile, hubby has a mechanized draftsman job and and acts like a mechanical person...except when he sings. He gets fed up with Ann turning their home into a bar-associate club where all the lawyers argue cases out of court, and he drops out and drops in at a nightclub and gets a job as a singer, and makes more money than when he was draftsman in an architect's office....and begins to imply that Ann should now be content with being a housewife, and Ann is having none of that. Later, she and her lawyer friends drop in at the club where William is singing, and she sees William getting vamped by one of the girl entertainers, gets sore and walks out..after insulting William. And..so they part and William gets an apartment and then a girl is found dead in his apartment, having accidentally strangled ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A nice surprise
4 February 2007 | by (LA CA) – See all my reviews

As a wife's (Gloria Stuart) career goes up and up, her husband's (Lanny Ross) goes down, down, but when he's accused of murder she comes to his defense. Interesting acknowledgment, for 1938, that a woman can in fact have a successful career -- and much a healthier viewpoint than that of Woman of the Year four years later, for instance -- but the authenticity is compromised by Lanny Ross's details: he's an ex-halfback who leaves his architecture firm to become a nightclub crooner. Yeah, right, there are lots of those. Nice work from Gloria Stuart -- she has an enjoyable scene in which she wins a case through a bit of chicanery -- and the Oscar-nominated tune is pleasant.
