Storyline

Foreign correspondent Carey Jackson is offered a job on Home Life, a "women's" magazine; he accepts when he finds the editor is his old flame Linda Gilman. Verbal pyrotechnics fly between Carey and Linda as they go to Indiana to cover the Brinker family's "typical American wedding." But triangles lurk beneath the surface of the impending nuptials. Can Carey rescue a story (and his job) out of the wreckage? Can all the sundered hearts be re-united? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

Because the Dewey-Truman presidential race was going on during filming, one of Mary Wickes' lines was shot with both candidates names in it. The original print used Dewey as the winner. When Truman unexpectedly won, the other version was quickly printed and rushed to theaters. See more »

Surprisingly good film with Bette Davis and Robert Montgomery (you'll like them together far more than they liked being together!)
5 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie surprised me. Typically, although I adore Bette Davis in dramas, I don't usually care for her in comedies. And, I don't care for Robert Montgomery at all...but I liked him very much here. But to me, this is not a comedy per se, although there is a lot of humor in it.

Robert Montgomery plays a foreign correspondent who reluctantly accepts a job under his former flame -- Bette Davis. He still loves her, she doesn't still love him...at least not at first. They go to Indiana to cover a "typical American wedding," but it turns out not to be quite so typical.

Another thing I rarely find funny in films are drunk scenes. Here, however, Robert Montgomery is hilarious as a drunk.

Aside from strong performances by Davis and Montgomery, this film has an extremely strong cast. Fay Bainter is wonderful, as always, although I would have wished her part was more substantial. You'll recognize Tom Tully, but perhaps for his roles in John Wayne-type films...much different here as the father of the bride(s). And you'll recognize Mary Wickes and Marjorie Bennett.

While this won't find a place on my DVD shelf, I did truly enjoy it. I think you will, also.
