We’re not sure we would call this a screwball comedy, but it is a comedy for sure.
Cary Grant stars in this 1946 film as an account executive who decides to move away from the bustle of New York and renovate an old country house. Myrna Loy is the wife. Problems with the house and the locals make this a difficult job, with hilarious results, as they say.
It’s the kind of role Grant does best, a slightly confused character rather baffled by those around him.
The real house still exists, as does the one from “Miracle On 34th Street” and is basically unchanged.
