The Palm Beach Story
(Preston Sturges, 1942).
Irresistible and beautifully written, this smooth satire on sex and money stars Claudette Colbert, at her sparkling best, as a lady who walks out on her innocent and penniless husband and heads for Florida in search of a millionaire to help him out. In this hilarious spoof on the foibles of the idle rich, the great Mary Astor is on hand as is a zany and delightful supporting cast.
