It’s Love I’m After
Directed by: Archie Mayo
Starring: Leslie Howard, Bette Davis, and Olivia de Havilland
Synopsis: Basil Underwood (Howard) and Joyce Arden (Davis) are an egotistical acting team known for their romantic scenes on stage and fiery temperaments off. Although they deeply love each other, their frequent spats over the years have kept them from tying the knot.
Comic complications ensue when Basil postpones their latest marriage plans in order to attempt to diminish the ardor of star-struck heiress Marcia West (de Havilland) at the request of her fiancé Henry Grant (Patric Knowles). When Basil’s boorish behavior fails to bother Marcia, who is all-too-willing to submit to his charms, he begins to capitalize on her infatuation with him, much to Joyce’s dismay.
