Movie Info

Bette Davis and Leslie Howard play an egotistical Broadway acting team famous for their romantic scenes. In truth, Davis and Howard are crazy about each other, but they spend so much time bickering that they never get around to marriage. The relationship is complicated by young heiress Olivia De Havilland, a fan who worships the ground Howard walks on. Howard tries to scare off the star-struck young lady by threatening her with seduction, but it turns out she enjoys the prospect of being seduced. Everything is straightened out by the climax, though Davis and Howard never quite get to the altar. It's Love I'm After is all the more enjoyable when one recalls the "serious" movie romances carried on by Leslie Howard with both Bette Davis (in The Petrified Forest) and Olivia De Havilland (in Gone with the Wind).more

Super Reviewer

One of my absolute favorite romantic comedies. It's completely hilarious. Both Howard/DeHavilland and Howard/Davis are among the best screen pairings of all time, so it's great to have both on screen. And the dialog is amazing. "You don't suppose we've awoken her 'slap me again, I love it' complex?"
