Audience Reviews for Hands Across the Table

  • Dec 04, 2019
    Here's an old plotline: cynical schemers who nefariously plan on marrying innocent rich people meet cute, only to see their plans derailed as they inevitably fall for each other --- against their own better judgment. And so, an old cart. How to sell it? Sparkling dialogue and bubbling chemistry, and this has that going for it. Not a lot, mind you, but enough to get by. And Carole Lombard and Fred Macmurray have the chops to deliver both.

    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.

    <I>Hands Across the Table</I> 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.
