"Additional dialogue by Dorothy Parker" makes the story of "The Moon's Our Home" what it is--a delightful comedy brim full of witty Parkerisms. Faith Baldwin may have written the original story about two celebrities--one a Richard Halliburton and the other a Garboish actress--who hate one another's reputation, but fall in love under their original names of Brown and Smith, marry, and presumably fight ever after. But the spirit, praise be, is that of Miss Parker. Margaret Sullavan and Henry Fonda play the parts of the temperamental lovers with high-spirited zest. Charles Butterworth contributes his usual finished dead-pan performance as "menace" and rival of world-traveler Fonda. "The Moon's Our Home" has more chuckles per film foot than any cinema within recent memory.
