It’s double the fun and double the romantic complications when a love quadrangle forms in this delightful screwball farce. Irene (Florence Rice) is engaged to milquetoast Waldo (John Beal). The only problem is, Irene does not want milquetoast; she wants bohemian artist Charlie (William Powell). When Irene’s sister Margit (Myrna Loy) marches over to Charlie’s place to order him to stay away from Irene, the two realize that they are perfect for each other—can true love prevail for these four crazy, mixed-up lovebirds?
