Tell It to the Judge (1949)- Comedy with Rosalind Russell

Movies are rife with spatting spouses. Here, both of them are lawyers. In Tell It to the Judge (1949), a woman (Rosalind Russell) accepts an appointment to a federal bench; her ex-husband (Bob Cummings) will do anything to make her life miserable.

Another man (Gig Young in a mustache) and another woman (Marie McDonald) are thrown into the mix to complicate things. It's a farce that's good for a laugh or two, but ultimately lightweight.

  • Woman of the Year (1942)- RomCom about the effects of a two-career household on a marriage, starring Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. 
  • Hepburn and Tracy team again, this time as competing attorneys in the comedy Adam's Rib(1949).
