LONELY WIVES (Pathé Exchange - 1931)
Patsy Ruth Miller, Laura La Plante, Esther Ralston, Edward Everett Horton. Directed by Russell Mack. ~ ~ ~ Horton plays a dual role as attorney Dickie Smith and celebrity impersonator Felix, the Great Zero. Smith is married to Madeline (Ralston) and Zero is married to screen actress Diane O'Dare (La Plante). Zero impersonates Dickie for an evening so Dickie can sneak off to the Whoopee Club with Diane and Minty (Miller). When Madeline comes home unexpectedly, she mistakes Zero for her husband and havoc ensues. Great Pre-Code fun.
