Directed by George Stevens • 1942 • United States
Starring Cary Grant, Jean Arthur, Ronald Colman
Jean Arthur is caught between Cary Grant and Ronald Colman—a pretty good place to be—in this effervescent romantic comedy. She plays a schoolteacher who, when Grant’s firebrand liberal activist is accused of arson, allows him to hide out at her country home . . . where it just so happens Colman’s conservative law professor is also spending the summer. Political and romantic tensions are handled with an engaging screwball lightness under the nimble direction of George Stevens, who injects some timely social commentary into the proceedings.
