Lombard reaches peak screwball eccentricity in her role as Helen Bartlett, the writer and compulsive liar married to honest lawyer Kenneth (MacMurray). When she’s put on trial for murder, Kenneth decides to defend his wife on the basis of self-defence and Helen plays along. But is this the one time that she might be telling the truth?
