Capital Celluloid 2019 - Day 262: Thu Sep 19

This 35mm presentation is part of the Cary Grant season. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Leo McCarey's astonishing attempt to blend screwball comedy and wartime propaganda—even more astonishing because, by and large, it works. Ginger Rogers is an American gold digger who marries Nazi Walter Slezak on the eve of the war; it's the job of radio correspondent Cary Grant to get her working for our side. Despite some windy passages, the film's equation of true love and the democratic ideal is irresistible, quintessential McCarey.
Dave Kehr

Here (and above) is the trailer.
