From the irrepressible mind of writer/director Preston Sturges comes one of the most insane screwball comedies ever made! Husband and wife Joel McCrea and Claudette Colbert are madly in love—and broke. When Colbert hatches an idea to divorce McCrea and marry a millionaire to fund her beloved’s engineering dreams, McCrea follows his wife to Palm Beach, where she has already hooked a bespectacled millionaire (Rudy Vallee) who has a man-eating sister (Mary Astor). From its bizarre opening sequence to its outrageous finale, The Palm Beach Story is a wild ride you don’t want to miss. [88 mins; comedy, romance; English]
