"12 times 1 is not 600"
on 23 July 2008
Delightful comedy written by Preston Sturges features the wonderful Jean Arthur as a working girl who literally has a sable coat drop into her lap.Her unwitting benefactor wealthy banker J B Ball(Edward Arnold)sets off a chain of events that take Arthur from the gutter to the gates of high finance and extreme wealth.
A top notch cast(Arnold as the combustible financier is hilarious),sharp dialogue and pacy direction from Mitchell Leisen put this bristling comedy across with some style.Beautiful timing and a slapstick sequence in a food parlour is a hoot.
