Irritating Comedy
Toni Gateson is an heiress with an edge. She flies into town and is hoodwinked by reporter Steve Leyton, who gets an exclusive interview under false pretenses. "OK, you got me", right? No,no. She proceeds to make his life miserable with a series of humiliations, and he responds in kind. Sound funny?

Things get far afield. He gets her arrested, and she does the same. As a millionairess, she has breakfast served at her cell and when she is bailed out, she bails him out. He refuses. Soon, he loses his job, is rehired, fired, rehired, etc. to further the comedy. If this all sounds funny, you might like "Judgment At Nuremberg", which is even funnier.

If done right, screwball comedy is very funny. For instance, take "The Awful Truth" - now that was funny. This picture tried too hard and was the visual equivalent of fingernails dragged down a blackboard. Tyrone Power and Loretta Young were very attractive and gave it their best, to no avail. Don Ameche was reduced to shouting his lines and slamming down phones as the beleaguered editor in a one-dimensional role which did him no credit. Humorous moments in "Love Is News" were too fleeting for a higher rating.
