4.0 out of 5 stars
high energy comedy with strong social edge, 14 Oct. 2004
a very entertaining 30's screwball comedy, with the great carole lombard partnered by ex-husband william powell (who made her appearance a condition of his own involvement). an arresting opening on NYC dump leads into a dissection of the lives of the idle rich, with interesting twists & turns of the plot. both leads turn in very strong performances. finally the film does not manage to weave the comedy together with the social comment as seamlessly as some might like, but it is a film which will stay in the memory for a considerable time.
