Ernst Lubitsch's bubbly comedy of remarriage may lack the prestige of his films that preceded and followed it, TO BE OR NOT TO BE and NINOTCHKA, but "the Lubitsch touch" is certainly present here too. Suffering from nervous hiccups, Merle Oberon goes to see psychoanalyst Alan Mowbray, who suggests that maybe her marriage to insurance exec Melvyn Douglas is less than happy. In the waiting room she meets eccentric concert pianist Burgess Meredith, with whom she becomes smitten, and soon she and her husband are headed for an amicable divorce and she's newly engaged. But when Jill receives word that her ex-husband has a new flame, she begins to have second thoughts about leaving him. Eve Arden and Sig Ruman round out the comedic cast. DIR/PROD Ernst Lubitsch; SCR Donald Ogden Stewart, Walter Reisch, from the play "Divorçons" by Victorien Sardou and Émile de Najac; PROD Sol Lesser. U.S., 1941, b&w, 84 min. NOT RATED
