The love of screwball comedies is what this blog is all about. Discussing and sharing everyone's favorite films and actors in them. Should be a fun experience for all involved.

Affectionately Yours showing on TCM, Friday June 18th
The lesser known comedy from 1941, Affectionately Yours will be airing on TCM early Friday morning at 4:45 am EST. So set you machines to record this comedy that stars Merle Oberon, Dennis Morgan, and Rita Hayworth. It's been awhile since I've seen it but the story goes like this: A married reporter's assignments carry him all over the world, which gives him ample opportunity to put the moves on the local females. He's in Lisbon attempting his latest "conquest" when he gets word that his wife back home has found another man and is divorcing him. Panicking, he heads back to the US to try to patch things up, but the girl from Lisbon follows him back, determined to take advantage of the situation. Morgan is the husband. Oberon is the wife. And Hayworth is the girl from Libson who is aching for Dennis to get a divorce. The stellar supporting cast also includes Ralph Bellamy, Hattie McDaniel and Butterfly McQueen. That's a pretty impressive cast. So if you get the chance to record or watch this comedy gem, please do so.
