John Hathaway is a professor of psychology at Digby College. His students are bored as he is with the students. He leaves college to go to New York to have his manuscript on jealousy published. John and Julie go to Elliott Morgan Publishing to discuss his book. Being that it is highly technical and boring, Nellie wants to focus on the small part about couples that she thinks will sell. But it soon becomes apparent that everyone is more intrigued by Julie than the book. Elliott tries to make advances on Julie while Nellie is more interested in John than his book. Julie, however, is worried about John, while John, who wrote the book on jealousy, seems oblivious to it and thinks that he knows everything about jealousy. Written by

This is a hilarious comedy! The whole cast is excellent - I was really impressed with Van Heflin who I'd never seen in comedy before. He was great, esp. at the ending when Don Ameche (who I ADORE) is chasing him around a tree! That is when I literally, was rolling on the floor laughing. Maybe I'm easily amused but it has to be seen. These guys are just SO funny! Rosalind Russell as usual, is great as Ameche's wife who tries to make her husband jealous and Kay Francis, who is always very good, shows she was an able comedienne. Her hairdo's and hats are another source of amusement. Supposedly Robert Ryan has a bit part in this but I didn't spot him!
Check out Gordon Meek's characters name. It's another little joke! ;-)
