Storyline

While alone on a cruise, the upstanding - and mean - teetotaler, Larry Wilson, receives a blow on the head, causing him to revert to his old, forgotten persona of man-about-town and swindler, George Carey. Deciding to get what he can out of his position as Wilson, he returns to Wilson's hometown to continue the pretense. The only trouble is he takes a serious shine to his wife, Kay, and doesn't at all agree that Larry should be letting her go. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

IF ONLY THEY WERE MY PARENTS...!
5 December 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

William Powell & Myrna Loy team up in a non-Thin Man romantic comedy involving amnesia & oil schemes set in a Pennsylvania town. Powell, returning from a holiday cruise, tries to rescue a drunk who's fallen overboard & finds he's lost his memory after someone conks him over the noggin w/an oar. That in his past life he was a drinking cheat & conman while in the present is a paragon of a clean life adds much mirth to his situation when he finds he needs to convince his wife (who has a new beau in her life & is demanding a divorce) to re-fall in love w/him. Zany, inspired & handled w/the same verve he brought to 4 Thin Man pictures, W.S. Van Dyke II (who would tragically commit suicide 3 years later) worked wonders w/this pair of actors. Look for Alfafa from the Little Rascals in a small part as a cub scout. Sublime.
