Re: Movies Seen in 2012

Tucker, The Man and His Dream - DVD
Island in the Sky - DVD
Killing Them Softly - free admission
The Palm Beach Story - free admission

Went to see the third of three Preston Sturges movies last night, the last one in the retrospective the Drafthouse has been doin'. I missed last week's, which I was bummed about, but two out of three isn't bad.

Joel McCrea was in this one, and in Sullivan's Travels, the first of the retrospective.

Its a bit of a convulated story about a couple goin' broke, she decides he needs money, so to help him, she plans to divorce him, pass their relationship off as siblings, and get a millionaire to finance his plan to build airports on top of cities. Followin' the advice of a cab driver, she heads to Palm Beach for the divorce, and her husband goes chasin' after her.

There's a twist at the end that comes out of nowhere, but other than that, it wasn't too bad.

Rudy Vallee was pretty good as the millionaire, too. He got some of the best lines in the movie.

Had a plan to see Red Dawn and Lincoln before work today, but since its six in the mornin' and I can't get to sleep, I may not make it to either of 'em...
