Not Rated
118 minutes
Comedy Romance
1941

George Stevens directed this intelligent romantic comedy, reteaming Cary Grant and Jean Arthur, and bringing Ronald Colman back to the studio for the first time since LOST HORIZON. When a charming fugitive, a beautiful teacher, and a stuffy lawyer are forced to become roommates, their unconventional relationship is suddenly THE TALK OF THE TOWN in this madcap romantic comedy. When accused arsonist Leopold Dilg (Grant) escapes jail, he hides out in the home of friend Nora (Arthur). Posing as a gardener, Dilg teams up with Nora to convince her summer tenant, Supreme Court candidate Michael Lightcap (Colman) that Dilg was framed. The zaniness never stops as the three of them dodge the cops, try to snag the real crooks and discover along the way that both men have fallen for Nora. But who has captured Nora's heart? This sparkling gem from Hollywood's Golden Age of Comedy was nominated for seven Academy Awards® including Best Picture.
