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.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
