if the film had a weakness, it might be that she never gets a full comeuppance for making her husband’s life so miserable.

She sure does get a good one at the end of their next film together! Plus, Fields really sticks it to her at the end of You’re Telling Me.

Fantastic review of one of my all time favorites!
