  • MGM producer Irving Thalberg cast his wife, Norma Shearer, in this witty film after she had been away from acting for two years. She's astonishingly sexy and sophisticated, wearing more than one very revealing gown which only pre-code production values would have permitted. Shearer plays Mary, a fast-living New York socialite who impulsively weds a reserved British Lord (Herbert Marshall) after they meet in bizarre insect costumes en route to a party. For five years they have a happy life in England, but when he goes away on business she winds up in Cannes on vacation with a smooth-talking playboy (Robert Young). A scandal erupts, raising questions about her past that throws their love--and their marriage--into jeopardy. Soap maestro Edmund Goulding (DARK VICTORY, GRAND HOTEL) directed this racy 1930s classic from his own screenplay, revealing a great flair for balancing screwball comedy with domestic drama.
