Storyline

Rich and beautiful Southern heiress Sally Warren loves horse-racing and running her horse-farm although her husband of seven years hates the four-legged mammals. Spouse Jeff Warren is a successful author, Civil War scholar, and popular lecturer on the ladies club circuit. After Jeff buys aging twelve-year old nag Albert in the mistaken belief that he's a colt, and Sally purchases a desk for her husband in the naive belief that it once belonged to Jefferson Davis, it's obvious that they have few interests in common. The squabbling is complicated by Jeff's jealousy of Sally's relationship with Lance Gale, her childhood friend, neighbor, and fellow horse breeder. Sally in turn becomes enraged when the ubiquitous Mary Lou Medford, a flirtatious literary groupie, becomes omnipresent with her infatuation of Jeff. Although the strains on their relationship lands the couple in divorce court, circumstances and an equine cupid bring them back together again. Written by duke1029@aol.com

funny amusing comedy
17 July 2001 | by wcfields1880See all my reviews

The performance given by robert cummings is good.He gets caught by his wife barbara stanwyck in the arms of diana lynn several times.Not by his own doing but he gets blamed anyway.Diana Lynn played a role of manipulation and did it very convincingly.And barbara stanwyck played the wife who is always one step ahead of everyone.
