Radio review - Lux - "Hands Across the Table" (1937) ***
A high concept rom com which could be remade today - a pretty manicurist and a good looking man from an impoverished once great family both try to nab rich partners and fall in love. Claudette Colbert and Joel McCrea step into parts played by Carole Lombard and Fred MacMurray and do very well. Bright and fun, if not too heavy on plot. And it felt a bit yuck that Colbert dumps the wheelchair bound rich guy.
