loy and powell crazy but ..., 5 July 2006
Author: cheeseplease from United States

Myrna Loy and William Powell were truly one of the greatest film couples ever. Sensible chic Myrna and goofy elegant Bill--how they paired well in many of their comedies! "Love Crazy" is the vein of "Double Wedding," "I Love You Again," "Libeled Lady," and maybe a touch of the Thin Man series. One can rely on their on-screen chemistry together in this movie. You know they're bound to make up after he's made an utter fool of himself. In a dress, no less! There are, of course, slow and arguably overly silly scenes in the film (the elevator, perhaps?). But this movie is worth it. If you like it, make sure to watch the other movies I mentioned above.
