Yesterday I watched The More the Merrier (1943) starring Jean Arthur, Joel McCrea, and Charles Coburn.
It was totally adorable. I love old movies, and that one just made me laugh. It felt like an Emilie Loring novel, complete with a dashing hero, a reluctant romance, and wartime Washington DC. It was funny, with unexpected little one-liners going off all the time without fanfare, and a few slapstick falls on the side, just for kicks.
(The only things I didn't like: the hairstyles (icksville) and Jean Arthur's voice. It sounded so affected - unnatural and whiny.)
I especially loved the 1940s fashion. Cute shoes with buttons, a-line skirts, and trim little blouses - mmmm.
Old movies are just so nice :).
