What a great collection!

I Love You Again is really funny. Powell & Frank McHugh have a field day, lots of chemistry with Myrna. Well-written, acted, and directed.

Love Crazy was funny, too. Powell does a good turn in drag.

Melodrama and Evelyn Prentiss are good dramas, only Double Wedding was a little weak.
