When nightclub dancer and gangster’s girlfriend Sugarpuss O’Shea (Stanwyck) needs to lie low, a house shared by eight professors researching American slang provides the ideal hideout. Producer Samuel Goldwyn assembled an A-list of collaborators on both sides of the camera for this delightful screwball comedy, inspired by the story of Snow White.

‘It’s as near perfect a comedy as any I’ve ever seen... There’s nothing I can fault’
