Favorite Scene


When Hazel's in bed trying to sleep off a hangover and the school children are outside her room singing and the squirrel escapes from the boy's pocket and jumps on her bed and runs up her back and she turns around and screams.

That scene was great.My own personal favorite scene from the movie was When she and Wally are having dinner,and she says,"Wally,oh Wally,look at that man with the toupee".LOL.

Just saw it tonight for the first time in 35 years. Now I finally know where my fear of squirrels comes from!
I loved it all!





Yes, sir, I'm going to do nothing like she's never been done before!

I love the way Wally jumps into the water- cannonball-style.

"Tessie" is the tune they always sung.

I like the squirrel scene too. One of my favorite things about that scene is the rendition of "Battle Hymn of the Republic" the schoolchildren are singing. The "Battle Hymn" is one of my favorite songs of all time, and their rendition had me doubling over with laughter

Mine is at the wrestling match, where they take a moment to honor Hazel and go right back to their exact same positions. That's the funniest wrestling gag I've seen since Woody Woodpecker showed a script to a pair of grapplers!

Oh, I loved the bedroom fight scene; Mabel Normand & "Fatty" Arbuckle would've been proud seeing these two leading stars mixing it up in classic slapstick fashion! When Wally kicked Hazel in the butt, I burst out laughing! Fredric March & Carole Lombard were great together here, both in their prime of fame and beauty, too. :-)

The squirrel and tupee man scene are why I found this movie so weird. I really liked both of those scenes.

Favorite scene is Frederic March getting bit by the kid. Wellman adored Lombard so I wonder if this was added after March made a mess of Lombard while boxing as revenge.

Yes, love it. Love it almost as much as when James Caan's Sonny Corleone bites his brother in laws knuckles, for good luck, after the sound thrashing he gave him. I'd swear that Caan ad libbed that.

I'll need to watch it again, which will be, of course, a pleasure, but in the meantime, can you tell me when that happens and with whom? Thank you.

Now I remember it. The Yankee that just said "yep" and "nope". Great choice! Thanks for the link. 😃
