Aro Recommended Palm Beach Story, The


USA 1942, 88 minutes
Dir. Preston Sturges
Rating: [G]
Genres: Classics, Comedy


Aroview: Another fine Preston Sturges comedy, this concerns a gifted but struggling architect (McCrea), whose wife (Colbert) abandons him for the hope of snagging a millionaire.

Her dreams come true when one of the world's richest men (Vallee) becomes entranced during a train journey to divorce-capital Palm Beach. However the luckless McCrea is just as strongly determined to win her back and sets off in hot pursuit. With finely detailed gags and that artful Sturges dialogue that teeters on the edge of absurdity, this is champagne-quality Hollywood.
