From the era of sophisticated comedy. - Twentieth Century review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert

Wild screwball comedy with Lombard trying to lose her svengali husband in search of film stardom. An exhilarating pleasure.

Enjoyably insane - Twentieth Century review by MS

Spoiler Alert
11/01/2016

John Barrymore is hilarious as the megalomaniac theatre director. The best bits are the most bonkers -- all the scenes from the train station disguise on. I especially enjoyed his depiction of his proposed Mary Magdelene movie -- "she'll be covered in emeralds!" "There will be camels! Elephants! Sand!" (or words to that effect).

The rest of the cast is good, too, but he is brilliant.
