"...the precursor and paradigm of almost every important romantic comedy to follow it." - James Harvey, Romantic Comedy in Hollywood
Directed by Richard Boleslawski
A handsome but nosy illustrator (Douglas) gets more than he bargained for when he threatens to reveal to the strait-laced ladies of Lynnfield, Connecticut that their own Theodora Lynn (Dunne) is also, under a pen name, the author of a racy romance novel. Theodora quickly turns the tables on him, scandalizing both big city and small town in this screwball battle of the sexes.
