Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

The witty team of Ben Hecht and Charles Lederer provided better and worse screenplays than this screwball comedy with the misleading title. The "affairs" indicated are actually business ventures involving advertising man Franchot Tone, in which his wife, Lucille Ball, predating her I Love Lucy character, interferes. The comedy comes from an unlikely source - the quest to create the perfect embalming fluid - but it's Edward Everett Horton who provides most of the fun in yet another film that pokes fun at the world of advertising.
