Additional Information

'Theodora Goes Wild' (1936), directed by Richard Boleslawski: A handsome but nosy illustrator (Douglas) gets more than he bargained for when he threatens to reveal to the strait-laced ladies of Lynnfield, Connecticut that their own Theodora Lynn (Dunne) is also, under a pen name, the author of a racy romance novel. Theodora quickly turns the tables on him, scandalizing both big city and small town in this screwball battle of the sexes.

Followed by 'True Confession' (1937), directed by Wesley Ruggles: Opposites attract despite their differences in this by turns wacky and heartfelt romantic comedy starring Carole Lombard, as well-meaning but incorrigible liar Helen Bartlett and Fred MacMurray, as her honest lawyer husband. Helen’s fantastical falsehoods turn the Bartletts’ lives upside down, but when she's wrongly accused of murder, she pretends she committed the crime to help her husband’s career.
