Summary
Cary Grant and Irene Dunne exude charm, cunning, and artless affection as an urbane couple who, fed up with each other's infidelities, resolve to file for divorce. Try as they each might to move on, the mischievous Jerry can't help but meddle in Lucy's ill-matched engagement to a corn-fed Oklahoma businessman, and a mortified Lucy begins to realize that she may be saying goodbye to the only dance partner capable of following her lead
