The stage play on which this film is based was adapted into a stage musical, "Everybody's Welcome" in which Oscar Shaw ("The Cocoanuts") played the lead. The show ran for an unimpressive 139 performances in 1931-32 but gave the world the song "As Time Goes By." See more »
After a year of marriage, Carole Lombard takes a job in a chorus line so husband Norman Foster can quit his job and write full time. However, with the traditional roles of breadwinner and homemaker reversed, Foster gets cabin fever. They haven't the money to party with their old friends, and Foster finds it humiliating to have to ask his wife for money. Their marriage explodes.
It's based on a play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, and director A. Edward Sutherland has not opened up the sets much; it almost all takes place in their one-bedroom apartment. Despite a good cast and some fine comic bits, particularly by Skeets Gallagher, it is far too old-fashioned to be more than a high-brow version of those slapstick two-reelers in which husband and wife swap roles.
It was popular enough in its day. A musical version played on Broadway in the early 1930s and introduced the song "As Time Goes By."
