Breakfast for Two

Breakfast for Two is loaded with a wide assortment of larynx and midriff ticklers, with Barbara Stanwyck and Herbert Marshall turning in slick performances. About the only time that the zany pace bogs down is toward the end when the action overstrains itself with an awkwardly contrived mess of housewrecking and pie-tossing.

Barrage of screwy situations [story by David Garth] take their cue from the efforts of a rich dame (Stanwyck) to straighten out a tippling waster (Marshall) and make him realize his responsibilities as the inheriting head of a steamship line. Also to land him as her husband. With such expert farceurs as Eric Blore and Glenda Farrell piling in to help keep things boiling, the plot gravitates from sly humor to fantastic goofiness.
