Cary Grant and Jean Arthur together again after Only Angels Have Wings. Wrestles with the idea of latent biases within all of us. Cary Grant and Ronald Colman both symbolizing opposite ends of a spectrum of lawfulness and through contention expose the inherent flaws within a system run by imperfect people.
I have to agree with DK. This movie is an under-appreciated gem! Grant and Arthur have an easy going chemistry and Colman was perfectly cast as the prissy professor who has a change of heart. Try to see this if you haven't yet. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
Waaaaaaay Under-rated. Grant as a borscht (with an egg in it) loving man-accused, hiding in Jean Arthur's attic. Stands out as a unique screwball that doesn't just rely on old tropes--Colman's last minute courtroom gymnastics are dynamite. What more could you want?
