There's Always a Woman is a 1938 comedy mystery film starring Melvyn Douglas as a detective investigating a murder and Joan Blondell as his interfering wife Sally. The movie was based on the short story of the same name by Wilson Collison and the supporting cast includes Mary Astor. Seeing the potential for a series Columbia Pictures quickly made a sequel, There's That Woman Again (1939) with Douglas reprising his role but with Virginia Bruce as Sally. No further films were made in the series. A 19-year-old Rita Hayworth makes a small uncredited appearance in this film as Mr. Ketterling's secretary.
