William Powell and Myrna Loy, who made over a dozen films together (six as the "Thin Man" characters Nick and Nora Charles), are romantically teamed again in this breakneck farce. This time, they're a happily married couple about to celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary. Unfortunately,

their domestic tranquility is shattered when Loy's battleaxe mother (Bates) arrives for a visit, sprains an ankle, and extends her stay a lot longer than had been anticipated. Mother dearest soon misconstrues a conversation between her son-in-law and an old flame (Patrick), the perfect wife wants

a divorce, and hubby must do anything he can--from pretending to be insane to dressing up as his own sister--to hang onto his marriage.

Featuring several superb set pieces and a great supporting cast, LOVE CRAZY has more slapstick than the verbal wit that usually characterized Powell and Loy's films, but there is also enough raillery to satisfy lovers of sophisticated dialogue. As usual Loy and Powell play beautifully together,

and Powell is hilarious in drag. The final scene, with Loy and her "sister-in-law" about to go to bed together, is amusingly contemporary in its humor.

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
