The Palm Beach Story

palmbeachstory1942, Dir. Preston Sturges

It’s as charming as it is ridiculous. Joel McCrea, Claudette Colbert, Rudy Vallee, and Mary Astor are all sensational in this screwball comedy that will have you laughing and shaking your head with confusion. With colorful characters sprinkled in, this hilarious comedy moves at a lightning pace but its witty lines keep it fresh. I’ve watched it so many times but it still makes me laugh aloud. Let go of reality for a bit and get lost in Preston Sturges’ zany world.

Return to list.
