best romantic comedy ever?


Recommended Posts

I can't dicide on just one. So, my favorites are:

May Favorite Wife

The Awful Truth

My Man Godfrey

How to Marry a Millionaire

The Egg and I (Because it introduces Ma and Pa Kettle)

Libeled Lady

The Bachelor and the Bobby Socker

There are more but I can't think of them right now.

I think that My Man Godfrey is one of my favorites too! Some other ones are Bringing up Baby, Meet Me in St. Louis, You Can't Run Away from It, and The Fuller Brush Girl! :)


Vintage movies are one of my favorite things in the universe and I hope that people never forget them, lose them, or stop caring! God bless you TCM and thanks for all you do!

I feel justified in giving a list for the 'best ever' because my analysis depends on my mood -- what puts me on the floor one day might seem a little cornball the next . . .


*Bell, Book, and Candle*

*The Bride Came C.O.D.*

*Cluny Brown*

*Christmas in Connecticut*

*The Divorce of Lady X*

*The Ex-Mrs Bradford*

*Father Goose*

*How to Murder Your Wife*

*I Love You Again*

*The Importance of Being Earnest*


*Julia Misbehaves*

*June Bride*

*The Lady Eve*

*The Last of Mrs. Cheney*

*Love Crazy*

*The Mad Miss Manton*

*The Male Animal*


*Mr. and Mrs. Smith*


*Petticoat Fever*

*Roman Holiday*


*Teacher's Pet*


*The Trouble with Harry*

*Under the Yum Yum Tree*



As you might guess, I have a lot of different moods . . . :)

my man godfrey is quite good. i especially like the scene where william powell pushes carole lombard into the shower! very funny. the whole movie is so neat and original concept. of couse bringing up baby, it happened one night, you can't take it with you(it has romance in it but all the crazy characters at jean arthurs house in that movie might qualify it as just an overrall zany comdy)! i laughed so hard at that one. the shop around the corner because it is so sweet and margaret sullavan and jimmy stewart have terrific chemistry. i also liked them together in i think it was called three comrades. can't remeber if that is the exact title but it also had robert young in it. it was sad but good.
