Preston Sturges at full tilt, with Claudette Colbert and Joel McCrea, Rudy Vallee, and Mary Astor. Joel is a crazy young architect who has dreams of building a magnificent airport. Claudette is his adoring wife who, in search of investment money for her beloved's dreams, runs away to Palm
Beach with the Ale and Quail Club and meets Rudy, the incredibly normal zillionaire J.D. Hackensacker III, who of course falls in love with her. Rudy's sister, Mary, falls for Joel. In the end all's set right again and each Jack has his Jill. It's hard to describe Sturges' special brand of comedy.
Perhaps it's realistic farce. He takes a perfectly natural action and lets it run on...
