Made for Each Other is a romantic drama with a light touch, thanks mostly to Carole Lombard’s winning ways. Young attorney James Stewart has high hopes for a partnership, but sees them dashed when he marries Lombard instead of the boss’s daughter, Ruth Weston.
His attempts to win over the senior partner (Charles Coburn) are fruitless until he desperately needs help to get medicine for his child on a snowy New Year’s Eve.
The script for Made for Each Other is based in part on a true incident that happened when producer David O. Selznick’s brother Myron was saved by an emergency air shipment of an experimental drug that wasn’t available in California.
