MY FAVORITE WIFE (1940)
Movie Review from ElCriticon-AlohaCriticon
My Favorite Wife is a film produced by Leo McCarey and directed by Garson Kanin, a well-known scriptwriter (with his wife Ruth Gordon) who sat in the director’s chair after McCarey was injured in a traffic accident.
It’s a delightful comedy, a hilarious screwball and romantic farce starred by Irenne Dunne and Cary Grant, wonderful performers with noticeable chemistry.
The plot is lively. The movie is creative in gags and characters, with an engaging collection of supporting actors, and has an intelligent script with dizzy, crazy and ironic dialogues (essential characteristics of the screwball).
A pleasure for lovers of classic comedy which has the participation of two future directors in the technical staff, Robert Wise as editor and Rudolph Maté as cinematographer.
