The first film version of Arthur Richman's stage comedy The Awful Truth was produced in 1925. A series of misunderstandings between flirtatious Agnes Ayres and sober-sided Warner Baxter lead inexorably to the divorce court. A year after the separation, she hatches a scheme to win her husband back. Perhaps the proceedings would have been funnier had Agnes Ayres possessed any sort of comic timing. The Awful Truth was remade in 1929, 1937, and 1953, the last time as a musical retitled Let's Do It Again.
