mad miss manton
- kevin sellers
Ok screwball comedy. Best thing about it is the patter of the bored, entitled, ditzy debs who surround Stanwyck. Wish they were in the movie more. Worst thing about it is the lack of chemistry between Fonda and Stanwyck. (Sturges did it better in "Lady Eve".) Their love scenes are fairly dull. Also, too much of Sam Levene blowing his top. Gets old pretty fast. Give it a C plus.
Mad For Miss Manton
Excellent Film. From beginning to end, top-notch story & great acting. Ensemble cast & fun to watch. A favorite.
The Mad Miss Manton (1938)
- James Higgins
What a delightful murder mystery comedy, Barbara Stanwyck is amazing as always, she and Henry Fonda make a great teaming. Very entertaining, great pace and well produced. Snappy well written screenplay.
Stanwyck and Fonda before The Lady EVE
Very funny and entertaining film with hilarious performances by both Fonda and Stanwyck.This needs to be on DVD!
One of the greatest
This is one of my Favorites of all times, in fact, I'm watching it now.I recorded it one night from TCM.It has to be at least two years ago.Please bring it to dvd so that I can add it to my collection of classics.Stanwyck and Fonda together arehilarious, just as they are inThe Lady Eve, which can be found ondvd.
I love this movie, i have watched it for years please bring it out on dvd, I love as much as the lady eve, it's funny and scary, it reminds me of the thin man series, it's awesome. please bring it on dvd thank you. iris

This is such a funny and interesting movie. The fashion the cast wear is outstanding! Why can't this be realeased for purchase? Great movie.When will this air again...I just missed it because I was away. Please let me know when it will air again.
BABS AND HATTIE A PURE DELIGHT
In the vein of "The Thin Man" and "My Man Godfrey" this is a wonderfully delightful screwball amateur sleuth comedy. Ms. Stanwyck stars (and shines) in the title role as Mesa Manton and Hattie McDaniel as Stanwyck's maid, Hilda, are simply divine. A MUST FOR DVD.
Wonderfully MAD! movie
This movie is so entertaining. I have been waiting for years for someone to release this on DVD. Barbara Stanwyck is incredible in this film. Actually , everyone in this movie is incredible.Whatever you do don't miss this one.Fun-Fun Fun!
The Mad Miss Manton a Pure Delight!
- Sandy Green
This old screwball comedy classic is a pure delight with Barbara Stanwyck's antics in getting her society friends involved in solving a murder case and her evolving romantic relationship with Henry Fonda who is on the case and not appreciating her meddling. Alls well that ends wells in these wonderful old classic films.
Lighthearted comedic romp for Stanwyck
I love Barbara Stanwyck in this movie. She goes from dizzy heiress to master sleuth - watch out Nancy Drew!
