Lizabeth Scott being all degrees of terrible: awful driver, awful wife, awful actress but well-cast here as a deceitful, insatiable fatale whose every mechanism is deliciously transparent. Dan Duryea is always welcome, of course!
This might be the most perfect comedy of remarriage ever. It's remarkably modern and sophisticated and one could see it easily transferred to the present (though God-willing no one will dare try, even if this film was a remake itself). Cary Grant fully emerges as Cary Grant with this film and Topper from the same year but it is Irene Dunne who walks away with The Awful Truth. Brilliant performance... that little lilt she does after she laughs kills me every time.
