Smartly directed by John Cromwell, Double Harness was a critical and financial success upon its release. Seen today, the movie seems at once modern and nostalgic, offering a vivid reflection of a sophisticated era in filmmaking. Double Harness has not been seen since its original theatrical release in 1938. Not part of a 50 's television package commonly sold along with the other five "lost" RKO films, it remained relatively unseen until its broadcast premiere on TCM in April 2007. Ann Harding and William Powell lend a great dose of chemistry to this lively comedy about a woman who tricks a man into marriage and only then tries to earn his love the old-fashioned way. Harding plays Joan Colby, a charming young schemer who believes 'marriage is a business' and sets her sights on wealthy playboy John Fletcher (Powell). Once Joan slyly arranges for her father (Henry Stephenson) to spot her and John in a compromising situation, marriage is no longer an option, it's a necessity. John soon catches on, though, and while divorce looms Joan takes it upon herself to win his affection back honestly. Double Harness is now available for the first time on home video.
