William Powell, Jean Harlow, Myrna Loy, and Spencer Tracy in a gangbusters, Oscar-nominated screwball comedy.
When heiress Myrna Loy slaps newsman Spencer Tracy with a libel suit, Tracy hires scheming, dashing William Powell to seduce her. What should be a simple set-up becomes increasingly complicated as Tracy’s impatient fiancée Jean Harlow becomes involved and Loy proves to be a tougher (and more alluring) mark than anticipated. Nominated for a Best Picture Oscar, Libeled Lady fizzes and delights like a sparkling glass of champagne thanks to its delicious dialogue, chic aesthetics, and legendary cast. [98 mins; comedy, romance; English]
“Four bright stars (Myrna Loy, William Powell, Jean Harlow, Spencer Tracy) in a picture that gives them lots of chance to shine.” – Ann Ross, Maclean’s Magazine
