Men Call it Love, but Vincent Lawrence called it Among the Married when he wrote the play upon which this MGM film was based. Adolphe Menjou stars as Tony Minot, a randy bachelor who is so sophisticated that he serves cocktails on a rectangular tray to accommodate all of his lady friends at once. When her husband turns out to be unfaithful, Connie (Leila Hyams) throws herself at Tony, who is already deeply involved with another married woman. Eventually Connie's husband apologizes for his behavior and all is forgiven, while the philosophical Tony moves on to other conquests. Men Call it Love is typical of the sort of white-telephone drama in which everyone wears formal garb even in the boudoir.
