One of the best screwball comedies of the 30s. Before their divorce becomes final, Jerry (Cary Grant) and Lucy Warriner (Irene Dunne) both do their best to ruin each other's plans for remarriage, Jerry to haughty socialite Molly Lamont (Barbara Vance), she to oil-rich bumpkin Daniel Leeson (Ralph Bellamy). Among their strategies: Jerry's court-decreed visitation rights with Mr. Smith, their pet fox terrier, and Lucy doing her most flamboyant Dixie Belle Lee impersonation as Jerry's brassy "sister" before his prospective bride's scandalized family. Oscar winner for Best Director Leo McCarey.
