Today I watched first 20 minutes before falling asleep, because I was tired. The movie, however, was really interesting. I also enjoyed the fabulous acting. In any case, I watched the rest of the movie after going to Capoeira practice.


Pros:
+ The pacing was fabulous.
+ The movie was charming.
+ Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell were excellent together.

Recommendation:
The charm and beauty of this movie is undoubtedly what makes it a classic.


I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a romance.

Credits:
Follows typical credits for older movies. Most of the credits came in the opening title. The end credits simply list the "players." There is one half and then it slowly scrolls down and pauses for the second half.


And that takes about a minute, and done.

Initially intending to just snap a couple of screenshots, the charm of this movie slowly convinced me to change my mind.

I recently saw Gene Lockhart, Sheriff Peter B. Hartwell, in A Christmas Carol (1938).
