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 Thomas E. Dewey/Harry S. Truman presidential race was going on during filming, one of Mary Wickes' character's 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 »

Goofs

When Linda and Carey are in Carlton's office and it cuts to a close-up of two suitcases containing various stickers all over them; the larger of the two is positioned behind a chair. But on a following cut when Linda picks up the suitcases; the larger suitcase is now positioned on the side of the chair and the sides of the suitcase that faces the camera have also changed.

Bitchy Sarcasm Between Sophisticates Works for Me!
13 June 2002 | by Pamela-5See all my reviews

A rare Betty Davis film that's funny. She works well playing off of Robert Montgomery. Biting, witty, satirical dialogue is very funny between the two. I would never imagine these two actors together, but in this film, it works! Could have been a cloying, icky sweet film but isn't. Wonderful supporting players (Mary Wickes, Sandra Gould, Jerome Cowan, Fay Bainter). Wish someone would write films like this again, films for smart people. Alas, we are left with monosyllabic grunts most of the time. For a break, rent this film!
