Quick Overview

Starring Joan Blondell, Dick Powell, Gloria Dickson, Frank Fay, Jessie Ralph, Harry

Davenport, Conrad Nagel

Directed by Ralph Murphy



Print: black/white

Runtime: 75 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



Ironically, the marriage between Dick Powell and Joan Blondell was beginning to fall apart

at the time they costarred in Paramount's I Want a Divorce. The film manages to sustain

two plotlines, with newlyweds Alan and Geraldine MacNally (Powell and Blondell) beginning

to have second thoughts about their union, while David and Wanda Holland (Conrad Nagel

and Gloria Dickson) are in the last stages of their divorce proceedings. It so happens that

Alan is the struggling attorney handling the Holland case, much to his wife's chagrin. As the

hearings proceed, Alan and Geraldine drift further and further apart, only to abruptly reunite

when Wanda Holland's suicide after losing custody of her son forces Alan to rethink his

own priorities. Often written off as a mere comedy, I Want a Divorce has a surprising

amount of meat on its bones.
