Two architects of sophisticated comedy, director Leisen and screenwriter Preston Sturges, mind-meld for a delectable diversion. When tycoon Edward Arnold tosses wife Mary Nash’s fur coat out the window, it lands on and with Jean Arthur, causing cockeyed complications including romance with Ray Milland and a wild sequence at one of NYC’s much-missed Automats. With gold-standard supporting players William Demarest and Franklin Pangborn.

A film by Mitchell Leisen
