Slight Comedy/Drama
22 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a slight comedy/drama of the Carroll/MacMurray teaming--below is spoilers from TCM---this is available to view online--where I viewed it in its entirety.

To win a bet, Christopher West, the daughter of wealth and a member of the cafe society, marries reporter Crick O'Bannon. Crick believes that his marriage is a union of love until he overhears his wife tell one of her friends about the bet. To get even with Chris, Crick writes a story about his wife's betrayal, prompting Chris' grandfather, Christopher West, Sr., to apologize for her granddaughter's cavalier attitude. To avoid gossip, Mr. West requests that the couple live togehter until a divorce can be quietly arranged, but Crick dislikes his wife's society friends and decides to live apart from her. Despite her constant bickering with Crick, Chris discovers that she is jealous of Crick's friend, nightclub singer Bells Browne. Resigned to losing Crick to Bells, Chris decides to sail for Europe but her grandfather alerts Crick, who meets Chris onboard her ship and tries to explain to her that Bells is only a friend. Chris follows Crick to shore, but at the club that night, she becomes so jealous that she convinces the club owner to fire Bells, who sings there. After Bill the bartender at the club yells at Chris for her brash behaviour, Chris realizes the error of her ways and atones by having Bells reinstated and admitting to Crick that she has been an awful fool.
