The "Morning Star" has a big problem. J.B. Allenbury is a rich and mighty man who will sue the paper for $2 million because of an article which says that his daughter, Connie, is nymphomaniac and only after married men. Reporter Bill Chandler is sent after Connie to prove that the story is true. The only problem Bill has is that he's not married, at least not yet.

VERY GOOD 1946 Technicolor remake of 1936 film 'Libeled Lady' (which I haven't seen yet, but now have a hold on).
Many people say this version isn't as good as earlier one, but I just had to take it on its own - and rather enjoyed it.
It's a pretty whack sometimes slapstick comedy of the absurd (the duck call teaching, for example).
It features former swimmer Esther Williams at age 25, Van Johnson at 38 as male lead - and also Lucille Ball at 35 as the second female lead, Lucille really lights up the screen - and not just with her fabulous red hair. The film's production (staging, costumes, etc.) was rather impressive.
Near the film end there is a scene at a large dance party where a lady plays great Hammond organ (one of my favorite instruments, particularly in soul/jazz combos - not what this is, but still fun to see a lady player doing both keyboards - and foot pedals). I just found out at IMDb that she was Ethel Smith and she was a rather famous organ player - fun to learn that. I always check out IMDb user comments immediately after watching a film. I also have Wikipedia open to the film entry - and that has link to IMDb at bottom in External Link section.
It will be interesting to see the earlier Libeled Lady with Jean Harlow, William Powell, Myrna Loy, and Spencer Tracy and see how I find that precursor film.
