i take this woman
- kevin sellers
It took three good directors (Von Sternberg, Borzage, and Van Dyke) to make this dull film? Incredible. Well, I guess that's what happens when your story doesn't have much of a conflict. That is, unless you think the answer to the question "Will Hedy choose kindly, sensitive Spence or stiff, boring Kent Taylor?" is in any way unpredictable or suspenseful. Also not helping matters is Hedy's usual crappy acting. When she's teamed with a similar male lox like George Brent or Charles Boyer it's not so glaring, but when paired with perhaps the greatest American movie actor of the twentieth century it's, shall we say, a bit more apparent? Anyway, Tracy's always fun to watch and some of the scenes with the idle, jaded rich are entertaining but there's no getting around the fact that when this movie's over you feel like you wasted a couple hours. So give it a C.
I Take This Woman ... I Do !
- Mark Johnson
Hedi Lamar portrays a young and glamorous New York City model. Returning on an ocean liner from a rendezvous with a man she is in love with but is still married, she decides to leap into the ocean from the deck of the ship because he is seemingly having trouble getting divorced from his hateful wife, so he would be free for her to marry. Spencer Tracy plays a Doctor who is witness to her suicide attempt while relaxing on the deck of the ship and saves her life. The woman struggles with the doctor but finally gets a good nights sleep. The next day she runs into the Doctor again on the deck and after a calming inspirational talk from him about keeping busy and keeping her chin up, she finally thanks him. She asks him where he can be reached. After he tells her, they part but soon after she still feels unsettled and seeks him out where he works in a poor neighborhood on the lower east side.The Doctor is surprised to see herald equally surprised when she asks if she can go to work with him and hang around. The Doctor is greeted with a hero's homecoming which makes a big impression on the model. They soon begin to work together at his clinic and he soon falls in love with her. The Doctor asks her to get married and she accepts, still unsure of her feelings for the married guy she almost died for and her new husband, the Doctor. The rest of the film explores this dynamic between them as the model confronts her true feelings and learns where they really lean. The dialog is as fast and intelligent as it is moving and full of emotion. I love the acting throughout the entire cast, especially Tracy and Lamar who play an unlikely couple who are meant to be together.. Great film !!

SPENCER TRACY'S MOST PLEASING ROLE!
"I Take This Woman" - what a nice movie! I have never seen Spencer Tracy seem so happy or be such a pleasure to watch! He's always smiling - evidently he loves life, his free clinic doctor work and his pretty wife must add to his internal contentment. Hedy Lamarr's Georgi is a rare beauty and fits in nicely with all of Dr. Karl Decker's free clinic patients. Is it my imagination or could Hedy Lamarr and Vivien Leigh be sisters? What a beautiful resemblance, if you place the two ladies' pictures side by side. A very enjoyable date movie with highs and lows and the usual, "they lived happily ever after" ending.
Is there a Doctor in this House?
Although it may not be a "Blockbuster" or even a notably classic film, it is by far and away one of my favorite movies of all time. The chemistry between Spencer Tracy & Hedy Lamarr is priceless. They should have made many more movies together. In fact, just the likelihood of the conspicuous unlikelihood, of their romance, is so tenable it comes off as much more of a realistic relationship, even more so than had Producers and Director sought out a "pretty boy" actor for the lead role instead, which would have completely defeated the practical purpose and creative intention of the story. A kind of story like the Princess and the Frog, who for want of a mere kiss, could/would be King. Great movie, which should be aired more often.
