Directed by John Cromwell • 1939 • United States
Starring Carole Lombard, Cary Grant, Kay Francis
Cary Grant, Carole Lombard, and Kay Francis form a memorable love triangle in this emotion-laden romantic melodrama. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Alec Walker (Grant) finds a shot at true happiness when he meets and falls in love with an open-hearted widow (Lombard). One thing stands in their way, however: the machinations of Alec’s vindictive wife (a marvelously venomous Francis), who refuses to let her husband go without a fight.
