You must stay between him and me always. Always! Love-struck Consuelo Croyden (Norma Shearer) cant trust herself around dashing Tony Barling (George Sanders). So she hires songwriter Terry Trindale (Robert Taylor), whos just as nuts about her as she is about Tony, to pose as her beau - and step in when Tonys charms make Consuelo forget shes a lady. In Her Cardboard Lover, three screen greats play a farcical game of he-loves-and-she-loves, complete with ruses, slapped faces, fisticuffs and Terry donning Consuelos satin Pjs, but it all comes romantically right at the end. With this frothy comedy, Norma Shearer bid adieu to the movies after 62 films, a Best Actress Academy Award (for 193os The Divorcee) and over a decade as the reigning queen of theMGM lot. She surrounded herself with top talent for her farewell: her two leading men and director George Cukor, who helmed Shearers The Women three years previously.
