Preston Sturges penned this comic fairy tale about mistaken identity.
Dir Mitchell Leisen
With Jean Arthur, Edward Arnold, Ray Milland, Franklin Pangborn
With its inventive script by Preston Sturges, this comic fairy tale sees impoverished Mary Smith (Arthur) living in luxury after an incident involving the coat of a tycoon’s wife that has everyone assume she’s his mistress... but then she falls for an apparently penniless man (Milland). Leisen, a former art director, revels in the sumptuous sets and unravels the tangle of sex, money and class with an admirably light touch.
