Directed by Preston Sturges

With Claudette Colbert,Joel McCrea,Mary Astor,Rudy Vallee,Sig Arno

Opening with a breakneck wedding sequence cheekily punctuated by a question mark, this classic screwball romance quickly cuts to bankrupt architect husband (McCrea) and ever-pragmatic wife (Colbert) facing eviction from their Park Avenue apartment five years later. But when she decides to use her powers of flirtation to nab a wealthier mate, a whirlwind of comic mayhem conspires to bring them back together and her affection for her husband proves unshakable. Among the most spryly paced and verbally pyrotechnic films of Sturges’ astonishing 1940s output, The Palm Beach Story also stars Robert Dudley and Rudy Vallee as idle-rich buffoons who fall for the heroine’s charms.
