In Suzy, chorus girl Jean Harlow weds inventor Franchot Tone, but before they can have a honeymoon, a spy (Benita Hume) shoots Tone. Harlow flees to Paris thinking Tone is dead, though he’s only wounded. There she becomes involved with and marries dashing WWI aviator Cary Grant, who refuses to give up his dalliances, one of which is with Hume. The spy plot and the tangled amours come unraveled when Tone solicits Grant to fly his experimental plane. The only screen pairing of Harlow and Grant.
When he made Suzy, Franchot Tone (Terry Moore) had just married Joan Crawford, in what was the beginning of a four-year union that Variety would describe as “tempestuous”.
