She’s been shipwrecked and thought dead for seven years; her husband’s about to tie the knot again when she’s rescued—the timing couldn’t be worse. Undoubtedly one of the wackiest of all the “comedies of remarriage” from Hollywood’s golden age, this screwball delight— one of a handful of directorial efforts from screen- and play-writing god Garson Kanin—reunites The Awful Truth's terrific twosome Cary Grant and Irene Dunne.
