Movie Info

This romantic comedy begins at an alpine resort where a handsome fellow sees a beautiful girl while skiing, suffers and embarrassing accident and then finds out that she is a prominent doctor. Though total opposites, they marry. As he is independently wealthy he doesn't need to work, but she, a chief-of-staff at a busy hospital is totally involved in her career. This creates friction, for with so much free-time, the husband begins growing terribly jealous. It does not help that many of her patients are handsome virile men. He begins bugging his wife to death; she gets fed up, and in desperation to save their marriage, the former playboy decides to do something new--get a job. Unfortunately, he soon finds out that getting and keeping a job isn't as easy as it sounds.

Audience Reviews for You Belong to Me

Remarkably obscure comedy considering it stars Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck at their peaks. Even if it doesn't measure up to The Lady Eve or The Mad Miss Manton this is still a cute little comedy. Starts out charmingly with Henry at his sheepish befuddled best and Missy her usual take charge dame. It does flounder around about in the middle with Fonda acting like a stupid buffoon but comes back together at the end. While the two leads can carry a picture both on their own and together without breaking a sweat fortunately they don't have to here. They are ably abetted by Edgar Buchanan's folksy reliability, Ralph Peters as trusty butler Joseph and the under appreciated Ruth Donnelly as Dr. Stanwyck's wryly observing nurse. Both leads are at the peak of their attractiveness as well with Barbara looking particular beautiful with loose flowing hair and a smart wardrobe. Difficult to find but worth checking out if you can.

this pic reunites the 2 co-stars of 'the lady eve' but be warned this frothy comedy is not quite as good.
