THE EX-MRS. BRADFORD (1936) B/W 80m dir: Stephen Roberts
w/William Powell, Jean Arthur, James Gleason, Eric Blore, Robert Armstrong
Amateur sleuth Powell with the aid of his ex-wife Arthur solves some racetrack murders. Delightful comedy-mystery, smooth and sophisticated.
From Variety's review of the film: "Another spritely entry for the school of smart comedy, detective mystery yarns, The Ex-Mrs. Bradford has a neat combo of names --- William Powell and Jean Arthur --- backed up by excellent support. Comparison with The Thin Man is natural. But the film is much better than a copy."
