Double Wedding (1937, Richard Thorpe)

William Powell is a free-spirited screenwriter. Myrna Loy is a stuffy rich fashion mogul whose little sister Florence Rice has long been engaged to passive Waldo. Powell ends up with Loy, and helps Waldo get a backbone and marry Rice, with the help of Powell’s rich ex-wife, Loy’s spying employee Sidney “Charlie Chan” Toler, and a screwball ending.

Written by Jo Swerling (Man’s Castle) from a play by Ferenc Molnar (Liliom).
