'A Millionaire For Christy': Eleanor Parker channels her inner Lombard


VP19

Recommended Posts

"A Millionaire For Christy" is a likable, if somewhat flawed, late screwball from 1951 featuring old comedic pro Fred MacMurray and someone you don't associate with comedy -- Eleanor Parker. Her breathy style is very reminiscent of Carole Lombard (who made four movies with MacMurray), and she has good chemistry with Fred. One could imagine this film being made 15 years earlier with Fred and Carole (or two other "screwball" stars of the time).

 

Here's more on the movie:

Eleanor Parker is without doubt one of my favorite actresses. I particularly liked her in 'A Millionaire for Christy', 'Above and Beyond', 'Scaramouche', 'Escape from Fort Bravo', 'The Naked Jungle'------just to name a few. She had such a nice way about her.
