Product Overview

Of course Linda Stanhope trusts her husband Van. Their marriage is based on love and respect. Who cares if Van's secretary has the face of an angel and the body of a chorus girl? Who says a blonde bombshell can't type and take dictation? But people are whispering. And when Linda calls Van's hotel room late at night during his solo business trip to Havana, guess who answers. Four Golden Era greats: Clark Gable, Jean Harlow and Myrna Loy as the romantic triangle and a lanky newcomer named James Stewart as Harlow's beau gild this sophisticated comedy-drama that takes a savvy look at men, women and love. Wife vs. Secretary: Guess who wins!

Review I thought that the title opposition must be between Loy and Harlow, but it is also, more interestingly, a conflict of roles for Harlow (though a conflict she sees no necessity for). The domesticity forced on women after World War II was not compulsory before it (there was the Great Depression still on, though one would never guess from this or many other Hollywood movies about the upper crust and Harlow's supposedly working-class family seems pretty well off).Stewart as well as Loy has to learn to trust his life-partner, the lesson of many, many Hollywood movies of the late-1930s and 40s in which adultery never occurs but is often mistakenly assumed of relationships and occurrences that were not the way they looked to suspicious observers.
