Double Wedding

Double Wedding is a 1937 romantic comedy film. A bohemian free spirit (William Powell) helps meek Waldo (John Beal) win back his fiancée (Florence Rice) and falls in love with her over-controlling sister (Myrna Loy) in the process.

Based on the play Nagy szerelem (Great Love) by Ferenc Molnár, the screenplay was written by Jo Swerling, and directed by Richard Thorpe. Powell's fiancée Jean Harlow died during production, halting filming. Powell later described finishing the film as "very difficult under the circumstances". Myrna Loy, who had been good friends with Harlow, wrote in her autobiography that she disliked the film because of Harlow's death and that it was "the scapegoat for concurrent despair".
