Description by OLDIES.com:

Bill Chandler (William Powell) is one of Americas's great anglers, a sports fisherman without peer, doom in waders to the wiliest trout. And that isn't the only fish story Chandler tells. Four of Hollywood's greatest stars - Powell, Jean Harlow, Myrna Loy and Spencer Tracy - reel in this whopper of a screwball romantic comedy classic nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. It all starts when society diva Loy slaps newsman Tracy with a libel suit. Tracy enlists fiancee Harlow and down-on-his-luck Powell in a counter maneuver involving a rigged marriage, a phony seduction, a fabulously funny fishing scene, fisticuffs, broken promises and hearts and eventually, true love for all. This Lady is one fine catch.
