Libeled Lady (9-Oct-1936)

Director: Jack Conway

Writers: George Oppenheimer; Howard Emmett Rogers; Wallace Sullivan; Maurine Watkins

Musical Score by: Dr. William Axt

Producer: Lawrence Weingarten

Keywords: Romantic Comedy, Libel

A newspaper prints a libelous story about a competitor's daughter, so a harebrained scheme is hatched to tarnish her reputation, which would render the libel immaterial and save the paper from a ruinous lawsuit. Snappy dialog and superb performances from four of MGM's top heavyweights make this sophisticated pre-code comedy a treat. Unfortunately neglected today.
