WIFE VERSUS SECRETARY (1936)
I wrongly thought this was suppose to be a screwball comedy, but instead it's a badly written story about an idle wife causing her husband a bunch of needless headaches. I love Loy to death, but I didn't care for her character here at all. If Clark's secretary had been a snaggle-toothed sea donkey she would've been just fine with it, but instead since Harlow is hot she just jumps to conclusions and wrecks havoc with people's lives. That's not funny or entertaining at all.
Amazing cast that deserves much, much better than this D.O.A. script. Not really worth watching, but with such an amazing cast I don't see how you can resist. If you need me I'll be in my room watching THE AWFUL TRUTH.
