  • Three Girls About Town

    1941. USA. Directed by Leigh Jason. With Binnie Barnes, Janet Blair, Robert Benchley. This screwball comedy—Benchley's hotel manager, Wilburforce Puddle, hosts a morticians' convention—never quite rises to the level of Preston Sturges, although it does anticipate Alfred Hitchcock's The Trouble with Harry. However, "No one did been-around-the-block-but-not-jaded better than Joan" (Matthew Kennedy), and one regrets that no studio (or Sturges himself) latched on to her for comedy in the succeeding decade. 73 min.
