NOTABLE: Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, and Myrna Loy had a series of enjoyable performances together as Wife Versus Secretary was the fifth of sex pairing of Gable and Harlow, the fourth of seven with Gable and Loy, and second between Harlow and Loy.

James Stewart relates an interesting tidbit regarding a kissing scene with Jean Harlow. “Clarence Brown, the director, wasn’t too pleased by the way I did the smooching. He made us repeat the scene about half a dozen times…I botched it up on purpose. That Jean Harlow sure was a good kisser. I realized that until then I had never been really kissed”.
