Symphony conductor Rex Harrison imagines the murder of his unfaithful wife (Linda Darnell) to music by Rossini, Wagner, and Tchaikovsky. No director ever matched Preston Sturges’s way of blending low slapstick and literate dialogue comedy; this 1948 film—his last major work—finds him moving toward a more Lubitschian elegance. With Edgar Kennedy, Rudy Vallee, and Lionel Stander.
