Movie Info

John Prentice (William Powell) is a successful attorney who often overlooks his wife, Evelyn (Myrna Loy), as he flirts with other women. When Nancy Harrison (Rosalind Russell), a lovely young client, distracts John, Evelyn takes her own steps towards an affair. However, the man interested in Evelyn turns out to be a criminal, and, in a frantic state, she shoots him. Soon, John is brought on to the case, but suspicions point away from Evelyn. Will she admit her involvement?

    Very episodic and overwrought drama with Myrna succumbing to the overacting bug at times and Powell rather stiff. The best performances come from the supporting players, Isabel Jewell as a wronged woman and especially Una Merkel who single handedly saves this from total soap opera with her terrific wisecracking. Rosalind Russell made her film debut here but is wasted as a devious society harlot. The ending is too precious for words.

    Powell and Loy deserve a better movie than this. This drama is predictable and at times boring. I've never been bored by these actors before seeing this movie.

    Powell plays a negligent workaholic attorney who drives his wife Loy into the arms of a parasitic gigolo, who incidentally winds up dead. Although without just about any comic traces, Evelyn Prentice is good for what it is--a somewhat hammy 30s melodrama with a hint of suspense. Definitely not the Thin Man but nothing to complain (too much) about either. As always Powell and Loy are great together.
