Directed by Alfred Hitchcock • 1941 • United States
Starring Carole Lombard, Robert Montgomery, Gene Raymond
Alfred Hitchcock made a rare foray into comedy with this screwball romance penned by genre maser Norman Krasna. It was the director’s eagerness to work with star Carole Lombard that led him to take on the story of the unconventionally but happily married couple David (Robert Montgomery) and Ann Smith (Lombard), whose devotion to one another is thrown into doubt when they discover that—because of a legal technicality—they are not really married. As she pursues a new life as a single woman, he sets out to win her back.
