Description by OLDIES.com:
To teach her unfaithful husband, songwriter Gary Stuart (Ray Milland), a lesson, Constance (Jane Wyman) sets out to have an innocent affair of her own. But when her plan backfires and she finds herself being pursued by an amorous Alaskan millionaire (Aldo Ray), Constance must first wriggle out from under this new and unintended romantic entanglement before conspiring to convince her philandering soon-to-be ex-husband that they are still very much in love. This musical remake of The Awful Truth is from veteran screwball director Alexander Hall, whose other classics include My Sister Eileen, She Wouldn't Say Yes, The Doctor Takes a Wife, not to mention the heavenly Here Comes Mr. Jordan. Newly remastered.
This tuneful remake of 1937's THE AWFUL TRUTH centers on the rocky marriage of a philandering composer and the wife who has her fill and decides to get even by having an "affair" of her own. Actually, hers is quite innocent. Unfortunately, her husband doesn't known this and the couple get a divorce. But somehow, beneath all their anger, the two are still in love and show it by trying to make the other jealous at every opportunity. The wife allows a handsome Alaskan tycoon to court her while the composer uses a pretty young woman. Of course, it doesn't take the pair too long to realize the awful truth and reunite.
