8:00 p.m. Eastern-- "Theodora Goes Wild" Irene Dunne, Melvyn Douglas, Thomas Mitchell
Charming, frothy comedy, with romantic overtones. Irene Dunne is a proper young woman in a Connecticut small town, but is also secretly the author of a torrid novel that has some townspeople scandalized.
Dunne is plunged into the New York publishing world, where the book's illustrator (Melvyn Douglas) shows a decided interest in her, with scandalous implications of his own...
A bubbling script and such expert players as Dunne, the effervescently debonair Melvyn Douglas, and old hand and yeoman actor Thomas Mitchell, make this a very fun watch.
ETA-- Sorry, I'm not linking any clips from TCM currently, because for some reason it hasn't worked the last few times! But here's a youtube clip from the film, very cute, showing the bantering byplay and chemistry between the very natural Irene Dunne and Douglas:
Oh, good grief, I had the wrong time at first. Now corrected-- it is definitely on at 8:00 p.m. Eastern!
AND, it turns out it was not co- written by Mary McCarthy of "The Group" fame, but a different Mary-- Mary Eunice McCarthy. Correction made. Golly, this is my day for snafus!
