Relations between Dr. 'Brad' Bradford and ex-wife Paula are surprisingly romantic. They divorced because Brad hated being dragged into murder mysteries, to which mystery writer Paula is addicted. But through horse trainer Mike North, Brad is embroiled in the case of a jockey who died of "heart failure" during a race. As they pursue clues, Paula pursues Brad for remarriage, and assorted hoods pursue the Bradfords.Written by

William Powell recreates, for RKO, his Nick Charles character, now as Dr. Bradford, M.D. and Jean Arthur substitutes as Nora. How did it work? very well! This film works because Powell and Arthur have terrific chemistry, and a crackerjack good comic-mystery script. The mystery is clever, and the humor urbane and lighthearted. If you have enjoyed "The Thin Man" films, do yourself a favor and see it. It's available on tape, and I suspect DVD also.
