U - Unfaithfully Yours ??????????????? Oh. And then it hit me. A movie plotting to kill Linda Darnell. It all makes sense now.

 

And Linda is a doll in the film!

 

I'm a Preston Sturges fan and Unfaithfully Yours is my favorite film of his. Ahhh, active imaginations. :)

 

So where's your list? I don't know your favorites all that well.
