It is' based on tho hilarious story by Robert Lord which deals with philandering husbands , flirtatious wives and martini mix-ups that lend to the Reno divorce colony where more marriages are unscrambled than at nny other place in the world. The picture carries ?in unusually well balanced cast with two straight Leads and seven of Hollywood's best comedians in principal roles. MargaK- et Linsuy and Donald Woods have the featured roles portraying a bride and groom whose happiness is wrecked on the rocks of the bride's suspicions, but who, contrary to the usual experiences, are reunited in Reno. Guy Kibbee has the role odf the philandering hisband whose henpecjting wife is cheated of the large alimony she had expected when he frames her into a comprimising situation. Ruth Donncly plays the part of the wife who rules her home with rolling pin and crockery. Glenda Farrell has the role of a flirtatious wife of a wealthy middle- aged man who is too dumb and too engrossed in his own business to be aware of her scandalous affairs. Hugh Hubert and Frank McHugh, in addition, sum up the cast total to a point wher it looks like a gay two days at the Saneger.
