Mr. & Mrs. Smith (1941)

Two New York sophisticates have been lovingly and passionately married for three years, until they are told individually that due to a technicality their wedding was not legal.

A screwball comedy directed by Alfred Hitchcock which is well-made, mildly amusing, but also a bit dated.

Halliwell*: "Smartish matrinomial comedy, surprisingly but not obviously by the master of suspense."

Maltin***: "Madcap comedy...One of Hitchcock's least typical films, but bouncy nonetheless..."
