After a ski instructor catches her husband flirting with an old flame, she decides to pose as her (fictitious) twin sister in an attempt to keep him faithful.
Greta Garbo's last film.
While you're there, I can make up my mind which one of you I want permanently.
Karin Blake: Perhaps you want both of us?
Larry Blake: Very possibly. Say, that isn't a bad idea. You for the outdoor life and - Katherine for the...
Karin Blake: Well, never mind. Even my sister wouldn't take...
When Karin has Larry's business partner and secretary in for breakfast, the shadow of the boom microphone can be seen moving on the kitchen's stone wall and door frame.
Although given a PCA approval certificate, the released film was heartily condemned by the Catholic Church, which applied enough pressure to force MGM to revise the film, and replace the existing copies for future bookings. The major problem was that Melvyn Douglas thought he was seducing his wife's twin sister in the original version, which also had a few risque scenes. These were eliminated, and a scene was added where Douglas calls the ski lodge to find out his wife left, so that he knows the twin is really his wife. The net effect was to reduce the movie's running time to 90 minutes (from the original 94 minutes). This is the version Turner Classic Movies shows every once in a while. This also might also explain the late copyright date and copyright length of 90 minutes.
