The Synopsis for There's Always A Woman (1938) 720p

An investigator for the District Attorney's office quits to open his own detective agency. However, business is so bad that he finally decides to give it up and go back to his old job. As his wife is at his office closing up, a wealthy society matron walks in with a case: she wants to know if her husband is having an affair with his ex-girlfriend, who is now married. The wife accepts what looks to be an easy case, figuring than she can then persuade her husband to re-start the agency. However, when the client's husband is found murdered, she decides to investigate the murder herself. Her husband has also been assigned by the D.A. to investigate the murder, and he doesn't know that his wife is also on the case. Complications ensue.

The Reviews for There's Always A Woman (1938) 720p


Not as charming as it wants to beReviewed byHotToastyRagVote: 2/10

Here's the problem with There's Always a Woman: Melvyn Douglas. I'm not really a fan of his in general, even though I have liked him in a couple of films, like The Gorgeous Hussy. In this film, as in many others when he's cast as a romantic lead, he's got an angry chip on his shoulder that isn't anywhere near as charming as he thinks it is. The running joke of the film is his banter with his wife Joan Blondell. They repeatedly dis each other and threaten to wring each other's necks, but Melvyn seems like he actually means it. He seems so grumpy and hateful, that at any minute, I expected him to strangle Joan and for the film to turn into a different type of murder mystery.

This movie tries to be a knock-off of the Sam Spade movies, with a husband and wife detective agency taking on a client's tearful plea to follow her unfaithful husband-and then the unfaithful husband winds up dead. Mary Astor stars as the tearful client, an audition for her role in The Maltese Falcon. The mystery portion of the film isn't very interesting, and the patter between Melvyn and Joan is just painful. Save yourself two hours and watch something else.

Delightful mystery-comedy vehicle for Blondell, Douglas!Reviewed bycanuckteachVote: 8/10

Caught this today on TCM - lots of fun. characters and snappy dialog borrow heavily from the 'Thin Man' series, only husband Douglas works as a lawman, and wife Joan is the wannabee 'private eye' (with all the right hunches). Blondell is very charming and lovably wacky, but proves that blonds CAN compete in the 1930's (Hollywood) world of sleuthing. Hilarious results come from Douglas attempting to keep wifey under wraps in latter portions of film while he tries 'to break the case wide open'.

Also, earlier, the couple return home from a romantic night out, but Joan's great expectations for intimacy appear to get dashed (---: witty scene, but tastefully portrayed ..

This is not what I would call EntertainingReviewed bynutinpersonalVote: 2/10

This movie was supposed to be the first of a series of movies with JOAN BLONDELL and MELVYN DOUGLAS playing the same man and wife parts, but BLONDELL opted out and another actress took her place. It isn't any mystery to me why she opted out. I found the husband part played by DOUGLAS to be rude, I could actually say in parts he behaved like a pig. I don't know. Perhaps men treated their wives in a different manner way back then that was condoned by the general public, but I was shocked. I mean, I know they probably wanted a different tack then the Nick & Nora approach (William Powell & Myrna Loy), but this just didn't work for me. I've always really, really enjoyed all of the roles Melvyn Douglas played. He's always seemed to play a "frisky" sort of fellow, but always a gentleman. In Mr. Blanding Dream House you actually wished he was your friend, too. But I had a different feeling towards him after watching this movie. It's any wonder BLONDELL didn't want to resurrect the role again.
