" Cute Little Comedy "
27 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I found " The Sainted Sisters " to be a cute and enjoyable 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 old 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. The shelter they seek is the home of Fitzgerald who has peeked through the keyhole and sees the girls hanging up the rain soaked money to dry. Already suspicious of the two, he agrees to let them stay for the night. Next morning as the girls want to be on their way, Fitzgerald questions them about the money, playing dumb, Veronica tells him to hold their suitcase while the girls walk to town to find a horse and buggy. Puzzled as to why he can't find the money in the suitcase, Veronica has it hidden under her bustle, he follows them around town, finally picking up his mail he also picks up the sheriffs new wanted poster of the two girls. Meanwhile the girls have secured a ride from George Reeves, but Fitzgerald intervenes in time, confronts them with the wanted poster and the girls are blackmailed into staying, with Fitzgerald holding their money and distributing it to the needy townspeople. During the course of the story George Reeves falls in love with both girls as does the entire grateful town. This film really shines with the fine cast of character actors, William Demarest, Beulah Bondi, and Chills Wills. Veronica Lake is extremely good as the more cunning of the two sisters, along with Joan Caulfield they 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 .
