Contributor Post Created with Sketch. ACF Masters #10: The Palm Beach Story

 

As promised last week, after The Lady Eve comes The Palm Beach Story, the story of Tom (Joel McCrea, ever the straight-shooting visionary) and Gerry (Claudette Colbert, as leggy, witty, and chasing after glamour as ever), a couple who can’t stick together because his business doesn’t really make money and her desire to spend money on herself doesn’t really lead her to work. A very American couple experiences the American problem, money and beauty, or how you find out what you really want and how to get it, and it takes a comic poet to solve it.

    “The highest thing in human life is this tender, playful connection to another human being” “Not the fall of man, it’s the pratfall of man” — fun conversation. Thanks for sharing it.

    For fans of the show: We’re going to be talking about the Eddie Bracken comedies next week, hilarious stories of small town America during WWII:

    I liked Miracle but Hail not as much. Maybe you’ll change my mind.

    Fellow, Ricochetti, I gotta question fit for the Sturges conversation–is my head screwed on right?

    When you look at my post & comments, is my headshot as it should be or sideways, not to say cock-eyed!
