If You love old Black and White comedies from the 30's, try this one.
22 May 2000 | by (Cali) – See all my reviews

Just watched this and 'Meet John Doe' today on the classic movie channel, very enjoyable double feature. Add 'His Girl Friday' and you have a great newspaper trilogy of B&W comedies from the 30's. I have always thought that the late 30's was a grand time for movie making. I really liked Edna May Oliver as Mrs. Atherton, she stole every scene she was in. It is very hard to beat Herman J. Mankiewicz for snappy, funny, sharp dialog. A great escape for 75 minutes of light hearted fun.
