Surprisingly original for an independent production, Two Heads on a Pillow is a fascinated precursor to the more celebrated Tracy-Hepburn vehicle Adam's Rib. Neil Hamilton and Miriam Jordan a play couple of young lawyers who fall in love and marry. Thanks to her mother's interference, the couple eventually divorces. Years later, Hamilton and Jordan find themselves facing each other in court on opposite sides of an alienation-of-affections suit. Despite the fact that Hamilton's client is wealthier and more powerful, Jordan wins the case -- and reclaims her own husband in the bargain. Two Heads on a Pillow is distinguished by credible, naturalistic performances by all concerned; even stereotypical Italian Henry Armetta keeps his patented mannerisms in check.
