Before their divorce becomes final, Jerry and Lucy Warriner both do their best to ruin each other’s plans for remarriage, Jerry to haughty socialite Molly Lamont, she to oil-rich bumpkin Daniel Leeson. Among their strategies: Jerry’s court-decreed visitation rights with Mr. Smith, their pet fox terrier, and Lucy sends flamboyant Dixie Belle Lee to impersonate Jerry’s brassy “sister” before his prospective bride’s scandalized family.
Directed by Mitchell Leisen and Starring Claudette Colbert, Don Ameche and John Barrymore
