Here's an article from TCM on the jabs:http://www.tcm.com/thismonth/article.jsp?cid=88446&mainArticleId=133164
HAHA Debbie I watched that clip, it was HILARIOUS. I love it how she giggles and hits him with the pillow. I like how she obviously had a great sense of humour. Bette, I love you.
Perhaps during filming, with the political banter, Montgomery was reminded of his sparring with Carole Lombard during "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" in the fall of 1940. And while Davis was a splendid, remarkable actress, she didn't have Carole's comedy chops (had she been at a studio other than Warners, which absolutely had no feel for comedy in its post-Code years, things might have been different). Bob and Bette were cinematic oil and water.
Carole pulled some great pranks. She and Bob were very fond of each other. He was also friends with Gable. The story about the Rooseveldt stickers she kept putting all over Montgomery's car each day is priceless.
