Directed by Wesley Ruggles • 1932 • United States
Starring Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Dorothy Mackaill
This crackling pre-Code romance marks the only screen pairing of golden-age legends and future real-life Hollywood “it” couple Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. Gable is the cunning card sharp Jerry “Babe” Stewart, who marries small-town librarian Connie Randall (Lombard), although she has no idea that he earns his living by double-dealing at poker. When Connie discovers the truth about Babe’s profession, she must decide whether or not to stand by her man.
