tim holt, ginger rogers, and walter connelly. gregory la cava directs, the great robert wise edits. this is another (gabriel over the white house being the other) great little gem by la cava that 9/10 people have never heard of and will never see. this one is similar to another la cava film, my man godfrey, in that they both have a poor person coming into the house of a rich family. after watching this film i’ll have to review that film again.
it’s got a lot of discussion of the division of classes and it does it in an engaging and funny way. sometimes it’s really thoughtful and other times it’s simple for comic effect. it’s a really well-written film with good dialogue and a cast of characters that really complements each other.
p.s. another great 1939 movie.
