Clark Gable and Carole Lombard in No Man Of Her Own.

 plays a big-time con artist who escapes the city of Manhattan for a little while when the cops get hot on his tail. While staying in a rural upstate town, he meets a beautiful woman (, the only film the real-life couple ever did together) with whom he falls in love and marries. Trouble is, he really respects this woman and doesn’t want her to have any inkling of what his actual occupation is. When they move back to the city, keeping her unaware of his activities ends up being more than he can handle. The trappings are delightful, but one can’t help regretting that Lombard’s excellent comedic resources are hardly mined here. Otherwise, it’s a fun trip and doesn’t take more than an hour of your time.
