More The Merrier
good film that takes place in d.c. during the housing shortages of the 30s/40s. joel mccrea and charles coburn are real good, but jean arthur is even better. she’s always good, though. the three stars share an apartment and hilarity (and love) ensue. good solid picture that, like many pictures of the time, encorporates ww2 into the background of the film. jean arthur and barbara stanwyck are probably my two favorites of the era. bacall is up there, as is k. hepburn, but arthur and stanwyck are more consistent for me. even in bad films, they are good and worth watching.
