Starring William Powell, Myrna Loy, Gail Patrick
Everything seems perfect for married couple Susan (Myrna Loy) and Stephen Ireland (William Powell), until Susan’s mother (Florence Bates) comes to stay for an extended visit. Now, a mother-in-law’s misunderstanding of Stephen’s call on a former girlfriend leads to jealousy, revenge, and an agreement to divorce. However, things take a hilariously screwball turn when Stephen changes his mind—and realizes that his wife can’t divorce him if he’s declared legally insane.
