Irene Dunne in My Favorite Wife (1940)
Pure comedy gold. Grant and Dunne team up again for this hilarious comedy about a man who remarries after his wife is reported missing at sea. Everything is fine until the first wife is found by the coast guard and turns her husband's life into a wreck. Cary is in usual good form, but it's Irene Dunne who makes the picture. She is delightful as the former wife who comes back. Great comedy. Co-starring Randolph Scott as a would be suitor of Irene's and Gail Patrick as Cary's second wife.
Irene's performance: A
Nick: "The moment I saw you I knew.."
Eve: "I bet you say that to all your wives".
