You Can't Bring It With You Either
4 August 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Otto Preminger was alternating directing for the stage and the movies at this point and this beautifully cast comedy is played like a variation on YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU. Like the New York Legislature or a Marx Brothers movie, everyone talks very fast and very loud and no one listens to anyone else. As a result, Jack Haley, who is not playing his usual milksop, is very frustrated in his efforts to buy a farm and be wooed by a surprisingly sweet and predatory Ann Southern.

A look at the cast list will show a fine assortment of supporting comics and people who didn't get enough chance to play comedy, like John Carradine.

I don't think this movie did very well at the box office, since Preminger didn't direct another movie for five years and rarely tackled a comedy except to finish up a couple of them for a dying Ernst Lubitsch. Perhaps this movie simply exhausted him. In any case, it is a fine, obscure screwball comedy.
