  1. This film has one of my favourite last lines, spoken by Demarest: “Positively the same dame!” Fonda must’ve enjoyed the experience since he made two more films with Stanwyck, You Belong to Me, the same year (story by Trumbo), and The Mad Miss Manton earlier in 1938, which is a must-see.

  2. Come to think of it, Fonda does quite a bit of falling down (thanks to Stanwyck and her all-female team of investigators) in Mad Miss Manton. But he gets his revenge in You Belong to Me by knocking her over on skis. I can see some film student of the future writing a dissertation on “Fonda Falling Down in the Movies – Can Stanwyck Be Blamed?”
