    My favorite thing about Theodora Goes Wild is its mirror structure. In the first half, Irene Dunne's character is a steamy romance writer hiding her work from her small puritan town, but Melvyn Douglas' book cover artist, taken with her, follows her there and by posing as an obnoxious gardener, breaks her out of her shell so she can live the life she' meant to have. Except he gets a little more than he's bargained for because in the big city, HE'S the one who has to put on appearances for his family and so on, so in the second part, it's Dunne's turn to lay it on thick and ruin his life so he can escape it himself. That's pretty clever. It does mean that they have to play annoying jerks through half of the movie each, and the result is perhaps that you don't care if they end up together. But they do deserve each other. More fun, perhaps, is the stuff with the small town gossips. 2 years 6 months ago
