May 21 – LIBELED LADY (1936)

When a major newspaper accuses wealthy socialite Connie Allenbury (Myrna Loy) of being a home-wrecker, and she files a multi-million-dollar libel lawsuit, the publication’s frazzled head editor, Warren Haggerty (Spencer Tracy), must find a way to turn the tables on her. Soon Haggerty’s harried fiancée, Gladys Benton (Jean Harlow), and his dashing friend Bill Chandler (William Powell) are in on a scheme that aims to discredit Connie, with amusing and unexpected results.

Directed by Jack Conway and starring some of the biggest names of the era, including William Powell, Myrna Loy, Jean Harlow, and Spencer Tracy, LIBELED LADY exemplifies both the screwball genre and the best of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
