Description by OLDIES.com:
Forties star Rosalind Russell (His Girl Friday, She Wouldn't Say Yes) is movie-shorthand for a smart, sophisticated, professional woman of the '40s whose career comes before love - until it doesn't. She's the epitome of the screwball comedy heroine, and just a little too smart for her own good. So you know that when Marsha Meredith's (Russell) recent divorce from hubby Pete Webb (Robert Cummings) threatens her appointment to the federal bench, and Webb insists that the divorce was based on a misunderstanding over pretty Ginger Simmons (Marie McDonald), things are going to get complicated. Enter Alexander Darvac (Gig Young), who becomes Marsha's pigeon for a pretend fiance, and you have a monumental marital mix-up.
Though divorced from attorney Robert Cummings, Rosalind Russell continues hoping that she can arrange a reconciliation. This proves difficult due to Cummings' fascination with curvaceous Marie McDonald. Contriving to arouse Cumming's jealousy, Russell pretends to be married to feckless Gig Young. There's complications and misunderstandings aplenty before happy-ending time. TELL IT TO THE JUDGE is so lightweight that it threatens to float out of sight at times; the stars manage to hold this pleasant meringue together.
