I'm sure William Powell was not available so in the MGM pecking order Walter
Pidgeon got to star with Rosalind Russell in what turned out to be her last MGM
film Design For Scandal. Pidgeon's part seemed to be cloned from Bill Powell's
role as the reporter in Libeled Lady.
Pidgeon is a reporter who works for Edward Arnold a rich publisher who hates to
part with a nickel. Arnold just got taken to the cleaners in a divorce settlement from gold digging Mary Beth Hughes and he's mad as hell at Judge
Rosalind Russell for really socking it to him.
There's some really dirty pool played here as Pidgeon romances Russell so that
Jean Rogers playing his girlfriend can sue her in a trumped up alienation of
affections suit. What happens here is what happens in all movies of this type.
You can truly figure out what's going on here.
The leads are fine, but Edward Arnold really steals this film as the 'mastermind'
behind this scheme. His reactions every time another bill is brought to him are priceless.
Rosalind Russell plays another one of those patented career woman roles she
did so well. Her fans who like to see her in these parts will be pleased.
