Quotes from

Jones: Miss Aikens, we want a woman's point of view on a certain situation. Now, Mr. Baker has a friend and he's in trouble...
Sally Aikens: Oh, Mr. Baker!
Jones: [Shushing Larry] Now, Mr. Baker has nothing whatever to do with it. Let's call the friend Mr. Brown. Now, Mr. Brown has a wife... Mr. & Mrs. Brown have been married for, uh, how long?
Larry Baker: Well, say six years. They live in Toledo.
Sally Aikens: Six years in Toledo. That's bad.
Jones: All right then, let's say New York. Now Mr. Brown is worried about his marriage. Things are not going along as well as they used to.

Facts about

Despite the indifferent reception That Uncertain Feeling received, the cast treasured its experience with the master director and the atmosphere he created on set. Meredith enjoyed working on the production and years later recalled, "I don't know when I had a better time in my whole career than during that period." Of Lubitsch, Meredith said, "He was very psychic. I'd fall down laughing because right away he'd improvise, in the middle of a scene he was doing for me, some very personal thing about my life, with his big cigar in his mouth, and he knew I'd come over and say, 'How did you know about that?' and he'd say, 'I have ways of knowing.' "
There are few close-ups of Merle Oberon in this film - she was recovering from her second bout of cosmetic poisoning, which had left pits and sores in her face and could not be covered with makeup.
Ernst Lubitsch and Sol Lesser had formed a partnership, Ernst Lubitsch Productions, Inc., but it was dissolved when this movie did poorly at the box office.
