Another Powell-Loy Classic, 20 May 2000
Author: ( from Bristol, Tennessee

This is another great comedy with William Powell and Myrna Loy. The elevator scene in this movie is just one of the hilarious scenes. I've watched this movie at least 20 times and every time I watch the elevator skit I laugh as much as I did the first time.
