This bizarre and entertaining movie is part noir, part screwball, and all fun. Lombard and Fred MacMurray are Ken and Helen Bartlett, whose fortunes dip during the Depression. He's a lawyer finding few cases, and she's a writer with few leads. Through a series of mishaps, Helen is accused of murder, and her husband has a hard time believing she didn't do it. John Barrymore is back as a drunk who knows too much, though the chemistry between MacMurray and Lombard throws sparks into this turbulent and ribald plot.
