Rating: C+ -- It's an easy film to take because the stars are palatable and go down as easy as a Bromo-Seltzer... . Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Here comes the bride - there goes the groom! The night before Mary Clay's (Joan Crawford) wedding, her flaky fiancé Dillon elopes with someone else. Mary's friend Jeff grabs his chance to buck up the jilted bride - and pitch some woo. Then Dillon reenters Mary's life and she must choose between the two men. Since Clark Gable plays Jeff and Robert Montgomery plays Dillon, it's a choice any woman would love to make!

The three stars prove marriage is a funny affair in this snappy, sophisticated comedy. Director W.S. Van Dyke (The Thin Man), scriptwriter Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve) and supporting comedy virtuosos Rosalind Russell, Billie Burke and Arthur Treacher put extra sparkle in the wedding punch.

Product Description:

This rollicking comedy, chock-full of MGM stars, revolves around a daffy romantic quadrangle. Jilted by one suitor and consoled by another, Joan Crawford demonstrates a sly sense of humor and a confused heart as female lead Mary Clay. Jeff (Robert Montgomery) has quietly been in love with Mary for 20 years, but Mary, unaware of Jeff's affections, plans to marry Dill (Clark Gable) until Dill leaves Mary at the altar when he falls for the cunning temptress Connie (Frances Drake). Dill soon realizes he has made a mistake, but he might not be able to recapture Mary's love with Jeff waiting in the wings. Based on a stage play of the same name that featured Tallulah Bankhead in Crawford's role, FORSAKING ALL OTHERS was a tried-and-true product for its time, and the witty dialogue, complex relationships, and clipping pace keep it enjoyably current.
