IT’S A WONDERFUL WORLD / THE MAD MISS MANTON
IT’S A WONDERFUL WORLD
1939, MGM Repertory, 84 min, Dir: W.S. Van Dyke

The unbeatably likable Jimmy Stewart stars in this crime comedy as Guy Johnson, a detective with a heart of gold who gets caught hiding a wrongly accused friend. When both Guy and his friend are hauled into the police station, tried in court and sentenced to prison time, Guy unearths a new clue that may rescue them both and point the feds in the direction of the real criminal. With Claudette Colbert as Guy's delightful love interest.


THE MAD MISS MANTON
1938, Warner Brothers, 80 min, Dir: Leigh Jason

Beautiful, charismatic Melsa Manton (a radiant Barbara Stanwyck) discovers a dead body, but when the corpse mysteriously disappears, the police and press accuse the charming socialite of being an irresponsible prankster. It is up to Melsa to prove them wrong, and to be fabulous once more. With Henry Fonda and Sam Levene.
