She Married Her Boss (1935): La Cava Directs Claudette Colbert and Melvyn Douglas

Displaying the melancholy undertones and alcohol-fueled set pieces that mark many of his films, She Married Her Boss is considered to be one of Gregory La Cava’s best comedies.

Claudette Colbert plays a secretary at a department store who falls for and ultimately marries her boss (Melvyn Douglas), only to find that she’s taken on more than she bargained for, thanks to his hellspawn daughter, evil sister-in-law, and boozy butler.

Running time: 85 minutes

Cast: Claudette Colbert and Melvyn Douglas.
