This is another of my favorite classic films. Like everything else…yes, it has been blogged before.
Roland Young as Cosmo Topper. I love that name. His wife in the movie, Billie Burke, aka Glenda the Good Witch. is not so sweet as Clara Topper, all she does is nag Cosmo the inflexible, conservative banker, that is until he buys the car that George and Marion Kerby crashed and died in. If you haven’t seen it, do. Carey Grant and Constance Bennett at their comic best.

No actor, (with the exception of Carey Grant, Clark Gable) had the swag and panache of William Powell. Powell and the spunky, stylish and beautiful Myrna Loy created comedy screen magic. Most film buffs or classic film lovers are familiar with this series. They really make me happy. I have seen them so many times that it affords me the luxury of looking at the details; the Set Design, Wardrobe, Props and so on. I mean for my Fashionista friends out there in blogland, her clothes! Being the hedonist that I am, I love the guiltless drinking and smoking,
As I was researching pictures for this post I see Johnny Depp popping up. I am wondering why? Well apparently he plans on reprising the character of Nick Charles. If any modern day actor could pull it off, he might can. He does wear the mustache well! However? This is sacred ground they are treading on. LOL
