Reviews in German: "Plot outline: Margit Agnew (Loy) has got her younger sister Irene's wedding
all planned out. She's picked out the perfect husband (Beal), the perfect
dress, the perfect date, everything. Only thing she didn't count on is
Charlie Lodge (Powell), a bohemian who promises to make Irene a big Hollywood
actress. Complications ensue when Margit tries to keep Charlie away from

I liked this movie a lot better the second time around. Like a lot of
screwball comedies, it's light on plot, but the laughs come regularly. John
Beal as Waldo, Irene's lackluster fiancé, provides some of the biggest laughs
as Charlie tries to coax him into being more forceful.

Production note: Production of Double Wedding was halted for six weeks when
Powell's fiancée Jean Harlow died suddenly of uremic poisoning. Myrna Loy,
who was also a good friend of Harlow's, said later that she couldn't bear to
watch this film because it brought back such sad memories.

Final rating: **** out of *****" (
