Name this Barbara Stanwyck comedy?

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone name this comedy featuring Barbara Stanwyck? My mother wants me to find it for her, but of course she does not know the name. The story is of a socialite that turns detective when there is a murder. That is al she remembers.

 

Any ideas?

I'm certain that "The Mad Miss Manton" is the movie being described. Although Barbara Stanwyck made a couple of other mystery-comedies, this is the only one where she played a socialite. It's really a very entertaining movie. And Hattie MacDaniel has some great lines in it.

Mary, check TCM's monthly magazine. They seem to show this movie quite frequently. When you find it being played, all you need is a DVD or a videotape, and your mother can enjoy this wonderful movie time and time again.
