Day 26 – My Happy Film

SandmanJazz’s 30 Day Film Challenge today goes right to the heart of why we watch movies in the first place. Well, don’t know about you, but movies make me happy. The prompt is a film that made you happy — and that would have to be my comfort movie of all time, The Awful Truth (1937).



Directed by Leo McCarey, it stars Cary Grant and Irene Dunne, the most witty and charming screen duo in this romantic comedy about a married couple’s unfounded suspicions, loose screws, crossed wires, and the general desperation of love, all with the most exquisite, steadily fraying savoir faire.


The original black and white maintains all the glamor of color and then some. Quite simply, it’s a hoot!

The unearned splendor of being means we can always meet on a common plane of gratitude, aiming in conversation, art, or writing towards “something understood.”
