Directed by Wesley Ruggles • 1937 • United States
Starring Carole Lombard, Fred MacMurray, John Barrymore
Helen Bartlett (Carole Lombard) is a compulsive liar whose wild fabrications cause endless trouble for her husband, Kenneth (Fred MacMurray), a scrupulously honest lawyer whose integrity has always held him back professionally. Hoping to give Kenneth’s career a boost, Helen confesses to a murder she obviously didn’t commit, confident that he’ll get her off and make his reputation. Things don’t go exactly as planned in this screwball gem, however, when a mysterious eccentric named Charley (John Barrymore) is added into the mix.
