Movie Info

After nearly a decade of nominal "leading lady" roles, Carole Lombard landed her first genuine starring vehicle with Hands Across the Table. Reasoning that the way to a man's heart is through his cuticles, Regi Allen (Carole Lombard) takes a job as a manicurist at a fancy barbershop, unabashedly admitting that she hopes to use this position to snag a rich husband.

Audience Reviews for Hands Across the Table

Breezy lark with a sparkling Carole Lombard. She and Fred work well together as always and if you only know him from his years as the retiring dad on My Three Sons he's quite dishy here. Ralph Bellamy is the odd man out again but at lest his Allen is afforded some dignity here instead of being the poor sap he usually got stuck playing.

Hands Across the Table is a variation on probably the most oft-recycled of all screwball plots, that of the gold-digger whose schemes are derailed by the inconvenient intervention of true love. Carole Lombard, as a designing manicurist, and Fred MacMurray, as the penniless playboy the former mistakes for her meal ticket, are both wonderful, but there's something odd about the tone of the picture, evidenced by the fact that our sadness for Ralph Bellamy, Lombard's unrequited suitor, outweighs our happiness for Lombard and MacMurray at the close.
