THEODORA GOES WILD
1936, Sony Repertory, 94 min, USA, Dir: Richard Boleslawski

Irene Dunne’s first big comedy role casts her as a small-town gal with a dark secret: She writes racy best-sellers! When enamored publisher Melvyn Douglas figures it out, he shows up on her doorstep and threatens to, uh, expose her if she doesn’t give him a tumble! With Thomas Mitchell, Thurston Hall and Spring Byington, based on a story by Mary McCarthy (Kevin’s sister).
