I found " The Sainted Sisters " to be a cute little comedy with lots of the amusement from Barry Fitzgerald, a sly old rascal who helps the two gold-digging sisters reform their ways. Veronica Lake and Joan Caulfield play the two turn-of-the the century sisters who are on the run after relieving an gullible millionaire out of $ 25.000. Trying to escape to Canada, they are caught in a storm and seek shelter in a small town in Maine. George Reeves provides the leading man part , but the story really shines with the fine cast of character actors, William Demarest, Beulah Bondi, and Chills Wills. Lake and Caulfield are both funny and fetching to watch in their period costumes being slyly tricked by Fitzgerald to help the needy with their money. This really hard to find film is a light-hearted story and entertaining watching the veteran actors of the day. Delightful also for fans of Veronica Lake .
