(1941) Screen version of the Broadway comedy by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart in which an acerbic network radio personality (Monty Woolley), forced by a broken hip to spend Christmas with a small-town Ohio family, contrives to keep his secretary (Bette Davis) from getting married while withering all around him with his insufferable sarcasm. Director William Keighley’s stagey production gets surefire laughs from the fish-out-of-water situation, witty dialogue and zany characters (Jimmy Durante, Reginald Gardiner and Ann Sheridan), though some viewers may tire of Woolley’s irascible egomania, and the dated topical humor. Mild sexual innuendo. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) TCM (cable)
