Easy Living

Directed by Mitchell Leisen • 1937 • United States
Starring Jean Arthur, Edward Arnold, Ray Milland

The madcap misunderstandings pile up in this Preston Sturges–penned screwball fairy tale that sparkles thanks to the light touch of director Mitchell Leisen. An effervescent Jean Arthur stars as the Depression-era working girl whose life changes suddenly when a $50,000 sable fur coat falls from the window of a Manhattan penthouse and lands in her lap—leading to a whirlwind of mistaken assumptions, an all-expenses paid stay in a luxury hotel, and a memorable meet-cute with a charming waiter (Ray Milland) during one of cinema’s most epic food fights.
