Storyline

Anne Crandall is the mayor of a small town in Vermont. Her deceased husband had been the mayor for years and when he died, she was left to carry on and to raise his daughter from his first marriage. She lives with the daughter, her father-in-law and a housekeeper. In the town square, there was a statue of her late husband and every year since his death, they have an anniversary celebration there. This year during a thunderstorm, the statue is hit by lightning and the head falls off. The daughter insists that a new statue be erected instead of patching the old one. Mayor Crandall is sent to New York to interview the prospective sculptor, George Corday. While there, she gets involved in a nightclub raid and goes to jail after she is mistaken for the club's stripper. Back at home, she tries to keep the scandal quiet and to forget Corday but he shows up and moves into her garage to work on the statue. Corday playfully uses the scandal to blackmail her into accepting his advances. Ann ... Written by ms_sunshine

charming comedy from the '40s
10 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer are "Together Again" in this 1944 comedy, which also stars Charles Coburn, Mona Freeman, and Jerome Courtland.

Dunne plays Anne Crandall, widow of a small-town mayor. She has inherited his post and lives with her stepdaughter (Freeman) and her father-in-law (Coburn). Crandall Sr. (Coburn) wants Anne to get out and enjoy life, but Anne, in very un-'40s style, enjoys her career and life and doesn't need a man. One night, during a thunderstorm, lightning strikes the statue of her husband in the town square and knocks off his head. Anne is rushed to New York City to interview George Corday (Boyer), a sculptor to do a new statue. There's an instant attraction, which Anne pretends doesn't exist. After a series of misadventures, Anne decides she doesn't want Corday in her hometown, and leaves New York. He follows.

Dunne looks great and shows her wonderful comic style, and Boyer just drips with charm in this. Coburn does a good job as her irascible father-in-law. Jerome Courtland is Diana's (Freeman) boyfriend, and he does a nice comic turn. A very young Freeman turns in a good performance as Diana.

I read some negative reviews here. I found this to be a delightful comedy, thanks in large part to both Dunne and Boyer, with good support from Coburn. Is it The Philadelphia Story? No, but it's very enjoyable. And those hats! Killers.
