Two of the brightest comedy stars of the 1930s were teamed for this enjoyable screwball romp. William Powell plays a doctor who slowly falls in love with his ex-wife while investigating a series of murders in which he becomes the prime suspect. His ex, Jean Arthur, a mystery-story
writer, does verbal battle with Powell but helps him track down the real villain. A public hungry for more THIN MAN-style comedy-mysteries made THE EX-MRS. BRADFORD a big box-office success in the year of its release, but contemporary audiences have unjustly neglected this fine film.
