1942. USA. Dir: Preston Sturges. With Claudette Colbert, Joel McCrea. 88 min.

Convinced that the way to support hubby’s career is to divorce him and marry a richer man, a concerned wife flees for Florida. Strange rich people, some guy called “The Weenie King,” and a trainload of gun-wielding elderly drunks await en route to an irresistibly implausible screwball comedy finale.
