Libeled Lady

  • by

Libeled Lady (1936) starring Spencer Tracy, Myrna Loy, William Powell, Jean Harlow

Synopsis of Libeled Lady

In Libeled Lady, Bill Chandler (William Powell ) is one of America’s great anglers, a sports fisherman without peer, doom in waders to the wiliest trout. And that isn’t the only fish story Chandler tells.

Four of Hollywood’s greatest stars – Powell, Jean Harlow, Myrna Loy and Spencer Tracyreel in this whopper of a screwball romantic comedy classic nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. It all starts when society diva Loy slaps newsman Tracy with a libel suit. Tracy enlists fiancée Harlow and down-on-his-luck Powell in a counter maneuver. It involves a rigged marriage, a phony seduction, a fabulously funny fishing scene, fisticuffs, broken promises and hearts, and, eventually, true love for all.
