Stanwyck and Cummings as the Bickersons, 22 August 2012
Author: ksf-2 from southwest US

The film opens with Sally Warren (Stanwyck) and hubby Jeff (Cummings) out riding, and bickering over why they live in the country, instead of in the city where they had originally agreed to live. Then Lance, Sally 's old flame shows up, and honks the horn over and over, scaring the horses, causing Jeff to get tossed off yet again! (You'd think being a horse person, Lance would know better than to honk the horn over and over right near the horses...) This is a story of marriage, love, and the meaning of giving... it IS Christmas time, so Sally and Jeff get each other gifts that they think the other will like, but things take a strange turn along the way! Having Sally's old flame around only makes things worse. Robert Benchley is here for comic relief as Uncle Todd. And a young thing starts coming on to Jeff, which doesn't help either. Costumes by Edit Head, (of course) and directed by Irvinv Pichel, one of FIVE films he released that year! Good, clean fun, if you can take all the bickering. It looks like the only other project Cummings and Stanwyck worked on "together" was "Flesh and Fantasy", but they were in different chapters of that film, so not sure how much they actually worked together on that one.
