Normally I'm drawn to grand 40s/50s musicals in color, but recently I watched That Uncertain Feeling (1941) and this comedy was just too good to turn off!
Jill Baker (Merle Oberon) is happily married to Larry Baker (Melvyn Douglas) but she has one problem-hiccups! One of her friends convinces her to see psychoanalyst Dr. Vengard. These visits convince here that she's not quite so happily married. One day, she meets pianist Alexander Sebastian while waiting to see the Dr. Vengard. He's new, exciting and introduces Jill to the world of art. Meanwhile, Larry is trying to organize an important business dinner for a Hungarian client and Jill invites Alexander to crash the event. Eventually, Jill asks for a divorce. Can Larry win his wife back or will Jill end up with the pianist?
Ah, a snoring husband. It's enough to give any woman hiccups!
Jill had lots of lovely early 40s pieces.
This scalloped bead piece was one of my favorites. Wonder what color it was!
And this yummy dress!
I adore the neckline on this blouse. It had a matching dark jacket with the same white scalloped edging with ribbon as a collar.
And there were some really funny things in this movie. My favorite part is a scene where Larry comes home and asks Jill if their friends are coming over for dinner because if they are, he'll shave. Jill complains to her gal friend who's there that her husband will shave for company but not for her. The friend replies "That's the problem with 95% of all men-they don't shave."
I'm always trying to get my husband to shave more often. He usually shaves in the morning but by the time he gets home from work, he's all scruffy again, so I found it very funny.
