United States 1932 64 mins.

With a nod to his offscreen playboy persona, debonair star Adolph Menjou plays an aging, wealthy lothario who is railroaded into marrying a full-bodied but empty-headed young blonde (Joan Marsh). Exhausted by her non-intellectual demands, the over-taxed husband conspires to find a younger man to divert the desires of his lusty new bride. Saucy, cynical, and fast-paced, Bachelor’s Affairs is a prime example of the “pre-Code” interregnum of mature Hollywood content. “There’s just one word to describe it: hilarious.”—Leonard Maltin, Indiewire.
