This week, we’re back with more Preston Sturges! Only, instead of taking a hard look at America and wealth and art, we’re taking a hard look at trying-to-kill-your-wife! Yes, it’s 1948’s “Unfaithfully Yours” where Rex Harrison really overreacts to a couple of lines in a detective’s report and plots to kill his maybe-not-actually-cheating wife and then hilarity ensues.
Oh boy. We’re probably going to get dragged for this one, but we promised to be honest and, honestly, we found this one to be . . . difficult. To get through. It’s 1940’s “Fantasia!” Disney’s first big money loser! And, a favorite of people everywhere. Look, Ollie and I totally get why it’s amazing, but we also get that it’s not always well thought out. Or well paced. Or . . . interesting. I mean, just give it a listen, kay?
