The Palm Beach Story

#2 in my movie challenge for 2006, The Palm Beach Story sat on the Tivo hard drive for a while. Once we watched it, I felt bad for having ignored it so long. It was a fun, funny movie full of charm. It was directed by Preston Sturges and starred Joel McCrea and Claudette Colbert. The beginning and ending were wildly, deliberately absurd. Both my husband and I were in grumpy moods when we started the movie; neither of us were by the end. This comedy (why can’t they make movies like this anymore?) has transformative powers.
