Okay, I was browsing online deciding on my final online film purchase when I came across this title. The reviews sound relatively good but I would like to know from you GOAH members if it is any good, or for that matter, which out of the 6 or 7 Claudette Colbert and Fred Macmurray films I came across after this discovery, is considered their best.
I just now saw your post from 2010! I don't know if you still visit GAOH, but I feel an obligation to post my opinion on this film for the sake of anyone who's curious.
The film has good reviews, but I was a little disappointed in it. Claudette lands her man (Ray Milland), but it wasn't entirely clear to me why she decided she preferred poor journalist Fred MacMurray to rich nobleman Ray Milland. I thought that part of the plot was a little weak. But it's an enjoyable movie.
For the best pairing of Claudette and Fred, I would choose The Egg and I. I have seen most of their pairings. I have in my collection:
The Egg and I
No Time for Love
The Gilded Lily
The Bride Comes Home
Maid of Salem (haven't yet watched)
Let me know (anybody) if you want specific information on any of these.
Hello Rosie !
Thanks for the reply ! Gosh I haven't been on here in a VERY long time and by chance I saw your post while browsing. So weird as I realise that I joined this forum when I was 17 and I just started a French cinema and audiovisuel school in Lyon this Monday. I'm 27 now and I decided to try do something with my passion 10years later !! It's crazy really.
We actually watched A Letter to Three Wives (1949) and had a discussion afterwards about the characters ect. It reminded me of this site and my obsession with classics. So voila, I came back to soak up the recommendations again,. Lovely to be here. So nostalgic !
It's good to hear from you again! Congratulations on the decision to "follow your bliss" as Joseph Campbell used to say.
I hope you'll stick around and let us know what you're watching, what you're learning, etc.
