Talk of the Town

George Stevens gives his usual heavy treatment to a screwball comedy about a fugitive (Cary Grant) hiding in a house that landlady Jean Arthur has just rented to Supreme Court justice Ronald Colman. Overblown, too long, and not nearly as much fun as it's cracked up to be, this 1942 feature demonstrates the same sort of social-worker condescension to the genre that Stevens would later bring to his “artistic” western, Shane. With Glenda Farrell, Edgar Buchanan, and Rex Ingram. 118 min.
