During the Great Depression, a wealthy banker throws away his wife's expensive fur coat; it lands on the head of a stenographer, leading to everyone assuming she is his mistress and has access to his millions.
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.

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
"Together Again" was the third and last pairing of Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne in the leads. One might say they each lose their heads over the other in this wonderful comedy. The story is riddled with hilarious scenes and lines. And, as the screenplay intimates, there might be some heavenly persuasion included in the story.
When this movie came out just before Christmas 1944, WW II in Europe had just been prolonged with the German offensive in the Battle of the Bulge. So, that Christmas at home, this film was likely another welcome escape.
A superb cast support Dunne and Boyer as Mayor Anne Crandall and sculptor George Corday, respectively. Charles Coburn has one of his excellent roles as a supporting actor. He plays Jonathan Crandall Sr. Mona Freeman is a riot as the teenage daughter of Anne, Diana Crandall. Jerome Courtland is very funny as Gilbert Parker, and Charles Dingle shines as the boisterous publisher of the local newspaper, Morton Buchanan.
The special effects and camera crews did some outstanding work with scenes of lightning in the sky. The very end of the film is a masterpiece of film work.
The dialog in this comedy-romance is so good, that a few samples are in order. For more funny lines, see the Quotes section in this IMDb Web page on the film.
Diana, "Grandfather Crandall, you weren't sick. You cheated. I don't know where you got this dishonesty about things, because you certainly didn't get it from me or my father."
Anne, "My, my, it certainly is philosophical out tonight."
George, "Most women's necks are just something to hold their heads up. But yours is positively lyrical."
Anne, "Oh, that was the strangest thing. I was standing right here with my dress in my hand, and all of a sudden, it disappeared. Right through the window."
Witherspoon, "It's manpower, your honor." Anne Candall, "Manpower, my eye. Use woman power, then." Witherspoon, "Women, to collect garbage?" Anne Crandall, "Why not? Women see more garbage in their lives than men do, don't they? They might as well get paid for it."
