reviews for this movie
Don't miss this outrageous pre-code romantic comedy!! Stars the sweet Margaret Lindsay, the sassy Glenda Farrell and the always fun Ruth Donnelly. The writers went all out for this tale of innocent and not so innocent husbands following their wives to Reno for divorces---and the unexpected turns once they get there.
This is a fascinating time capsule of Reno, Nevada--the town that did HUGE business in quick divorces for many years when most states had very difficult divorce laws.
Guy Kibbee does what he always did best and Donald Woods is the clueless husband in this entertaining film with lots of great dialogue. The always-annoying Hugh Herbert and always fun Frank McHugh keep the festivities going well!
The accompanying trailer has a unique twist: one of the cuties describing this movie say it "..is even better than Convention City..." As many a film buff knows, the Warners film CONVENTION CITY is the lost grail of pre-code comedies. Legend has it that Jack Warner bowed to the Hayes Office and destroyed the negative and all available prints of this comedy dealing with married men at a convention....
