In this delightful screwball comedy, Spencer Tracy stars as Warren Haggerty, a workaholic city newspaper editor engaged to his long suffering fiancée Gladys (Jean Harlow), who has been waiting years for Warren to actually show up at the altar. It seems that every time the couple comes close to walking down the aisle, a big news story breaks, sending Warren back to his true love: the newsroom. This time out, their wedding is halted when Warren's newspaper is slapped with a $5 million libel suit from haughty socialite Connie Allenbury (Myrna Loy) after the paper prints a false story about her being a home-wrecker. In an effort to save the paper from certain bankruptcy, Warren quickly enlists the help of former employee Bill Chandler (William Powell), who specializes in finding slick ways to make libel suits disappear. His assignment: to find a way to make the home-wrecking allegations true and therefore make Connie drop the lawsuit. Warren arranges for Bill to marry Gladys in name only. As a married man, Bill's plan is to then insinuate himself into Connie's life and sweep her off her feet just in time for cameras to capture her reputation being compromised, thereby making the libelous allegations true. The real trouble begins when Bill really falls for Connie and Gladys falls for Bill. Can Bill convince Connie to drop the lawsuit without the scheme exploding in everyone's faces?

TCM Guest Programmer...This Month Is Fashion Designer Joseph Abboud
Celebrated menswear designer and author Joseph Abboud says his interest in clothes and fashion was initially inspired by the movies, which continue to influence him today.
Introduction To Second Look...
Anyone who has written a crime/mystery story since 1930, anywhere in the world, owes a debt to Dashiell Hammett.
Raymond Chandler, certainly. But also bestselling contemporary writers such as James Ellroy, Michael Connelly, Laura Lippman, Elmore Leonard and Sara Paretsky.
All of us, really. Hammett's influential stories and novels set the structural template for almost every derivation of modern crime story. He also set the tone and tempo: the tough, terse, as-it-happens pace, the jaundiced and cynical attitude--always peppering the pages with bitter humor.
