  • The King and the Chorus Girl

    1937. USA. Directed by Mervyn LeRoy. Screenplay by Norman Krasna, Groucho Marx. With Fernand Gravet, Edward Everett Horton, Jane Wyman. This is Groucho's take on the affair between King Edward VIII and American Wallis Simpson. Blondell claimed that her stint as a Lubitschean heroine was her favorite role, enabling her to subtly elevate her status, and that of chorus girls everywhere, above vulgarity to new heights of "intelligence and character." 94 min.
