Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery are teamed successfully here in a light and gay marital farce, with accent on the laugh side through generation of continual bickering of the pair.
The Smiths (Lombard and Montgomery) are happily # though battlingly # married. A bantering question, ‘If you had to do it all over would you marry me’ and the obvious husbandly reply of ‘No’, starts things going. Advised that the three-year-old marriage is void because of legal technicalities, Mrs Smith tosses Mr Smith out of the house. Then the yarn develops into a run-around # with Mr making continual stabs to recapture his wife, while his law partner, (Gene Raymond) is a ready victim of her advances aimed at inspiring jealousy.
Alfred Hitchcock pilots the story in a straight farcical groove # with resort to slapstick interludes or overplaying by the characters. Pacing his assignment at a steady gait, Hitchcock catches all of the laugh values from the above par script of Norman Krasna.
