    I know Jean Harlow gets all the publicity, but for me, she does not hold a candle to Myrna Loy. Watching this film for the first time, just solidify’s that for me. She was funny, beautiful, and did I say beautiful?

    Is it just me or do other viewers notice how puffy-faced Harlow looks in this? it bothers me because it seems she was ill when she was making this movie

    – which she probably was. Great film, though!

    Even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream

    It looks like there may have been a cameo appearance by Desi Arnez in this movie. The elevator operator looks like him. Anyone out there have any info on this?

    Thanks!

    This is a excellent movie . I love It. It is a movie you can watch more than once. Jean Harlow is a Gem of an Actress. Timeless.

    I consider myself a knowledgeable movie fan, and I never even heard of this film until this morning. Before baking Christmas cookies, this movie started on TCM and I watched the whole thing without moving from the TV. And I only thought William Powell and Myrna Loy were in "The Thin Man" movies! Loved it. And the cookies were delicious.

    I need a cool Signature for way down here.

    I just saw Libeled Lady and enjoyed it very much. It was my first Jean Harlow film and while she looked very lovely, I was wishing the director of photography for the film would have included more closeups of her character. There were one or two but not nearly enough. I realize this was a comic role and that she is today remembered mostly for her comedic, wisecracking roles. I was just hoping the camera could have revealed her classic features instead of keeping a mid-distance range throughout the film.

    …then who could have played Gladys? Una Merkel? Glenda Farrell?

    The Bill Powell character married the Myrna Loy character because he determined that his marriage to Jean Harlow was not valid because her Yucatan divorce was valid.

    Here’s the deal. Harlow had missed at least three wedding dates with Spencer Tracy, so if Tracy had ever shown up on time, that marriage would not be valid (and by corollary, the entire start of the picture would be meaniness).

    It would seem to me that the Powell character would have been smart enough to realize this and to realize that either Tracy or Harlow would have figured that out to have made arrangements to correct that matter.

    Is an absolute riot. I love how she stalks through the newspaper offices like an albino peacock on PCP, looking for the one that got away. She’s damned if she’s not gonna get married. Too bad she had to leave us so young.

    You take that diaper off your head, you put it back on your sister!

    I can’t believe there are hardly any comments on this amazing film! This is one of the absolute classic screwball comedies and what an amazing cast!

    Did anyone else realise that Powell said "Lake Taupo" completely wrong. Maybe thats how they pronounced it in the 30’s idk but I live in New Zealand and when he said " Lake Taupo" he says "ewpo" instead of "owpo" in the middle. Or rather "Towewpo" It’s hilarious. I was very surprised that New Zealand was even mentioned in a classic film but his pronunciation made it twice as funny.

    I loved this film from the I first saw it in about 1997 and have watched it a couple of times since and have loved it just as much – the star power is what really does it for me (I love the scene where Loy proposes to Powell). The VHS is no longer available and I am hoping VERY much that MGM will bring it out on DVD very soon. What are the chances?
