A haughty musical conductor suspects his wife of infidelity in Preston Sturges’ comedy romance.
Dir Preston Sturges
With Rex Harrison, Linda Darnell, Rudy Vallée
As a film programmer at Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, Pauline Kael championed Sturges’ comedy of marital distrust. She cherished it because ‘there are so many great lines and situations in this movie that writers and directors have been stealing from it for years, but no one has ever come close to replicating the wild-man devilry of the best Preston Sturges comedies.’
The screening on Wednesday 12 June will be introduced by film critic Kate Stables.
