Thinking that the airplane they are flying in is about to crash and death is imminent, a husband confesses to his wife, of eight happy years, that he had once several years ago had a brief affair with her best friend. The wife forgives him until they land safely at the airport, at which point she becomes furious and begins making life miserable for him. She dons the role of several martyrs, including Cleopatra, in her payback scheme.Written by

My sister and I saw this in 1952 and were impressed enough to remember some of the lines until this day. Ann Baxter "Oh, I'd just go mad if I didn't have my little escape hatches!" We put it into some of our little family entertainment dramas. I was 16 and she was 13 when we saw it.
It was fun -- and I thought I recognized Wild Red Barry as one of the toughs at the Men Only health retreat. According to the cast list it was Henry Kulky as the 'pug'. Mike Mazursky, also a pro rassler, is not credited at all, although he has a line about not fearing to push a ladies face in.
I agree -- why isn't it shown more often? While the Empress walks the naked backs of male slaves she digs her high heel around a bit on MacDoanld Carey, and he looks up at the camera in dismay or something.
