Director John Cromwell delivered the goods: bright, economical, charming & witty with a production value of silky gowns and top hats each fit to a T, while the re-used, re-dressed sets work perfectly. Double Harness (1936) is a suave, sexually implied romantic romp cascading from a great era in American films. Ann Harding exudes unalloyed confidence with the dreamy guy in the tux, mustache and penthouse elan.
Another solid vehicle for Powell, who seemingly could do no wrong in the 30s. Must have had a great agent. Billed as a comedy, its more of a social commentary on gold diggers during the depression, which makes it quite an interesting piece. Well executed, and unfortunately as I understand from other sites was unseen for many years. Thankfully its been given new life. A great way to spend little over an hour. Solid 4
