The Palm Beach Story (Preston Sturges, 1942)

I wrote some posts today, a full year after I swore I'd start posting something.  And while I did, The Palm Beach Story (Preston Sturges, 1942) played in the background.

I won't pretend Sturges' work hasn't aged at all, or that his character names aren't ridiculous, or that all the gags still work.

But the guy had something undeniable, and an amazing four-year run (1940-44).
