| Adorable film about a theatrical couple
A very young Bette Davis is again paired with Leslie Howard, this time in a delightful, frothy comedy about battling theatrical costars. Supposedly the couple was based on Lunt and Fontanne, but I suspect there's a little influence from "Private Lives" as well.

Howard is a riot as the outrageous, narcissistic actor who can't stop getting women to fall in love with him, and Davis is a beautiful spitfire as his costar/fiancé.

Olivia deHavilland is the sweet young thing in this and she's lovely as a starry-eyed woman who thinks she's in love with Howard. Eric Blore is Howard's hapless manservant, and he's hilarious.

This is such a wonderful, witty movie, the kind, alas, that had its heyday in the '30 and '40s and is no more. The beginning scenes, with the two on stage in Romeo and Juliet, whispering insults, is especially funny. It's great to see such a young Davis and deHavilland, too, and Leslie Howard in comedy. This movie is a treasure, not to be missed.
