Hands Across the Table

A gold-digging manicurist learns that money isn’t everything when she falls for a society bachelor.

USA 1935
Dir Mitchell Leisen
With Carole Lombard, Fred MacMurray, Ralph Bellamy, Astrid Allwyn
79min
35mm
Certificate PG

This romcom – intended by Paramount producer Ernst Lubitsch as a vehicle to promote Lombard’s comedic acting abilities – was the first time Lombard had worked with Leisen and the first of four films with Fred MacMurray. It’s a sweet and slightly cynical love story of a gold-digging manicurist who learns that money isn’t everything when she falls for a ne’er-do-well society bachelor.
