You Can't Take It With You
I'm a fan of classic movies. I love old movies and old TV shows, too, for that matter. Tonight I watched a perfectly delightful film, You Can't Take It With You. After the conclusion, I decided to Google it to see in what year it was created (I'm not too fond of the Roman Numerals method.). I was pleasantly surprised to learn not only the year–1938, but also that it was a two time Academy Award winner—Best Picture and Best Director. While watching it, I discovered many of the actors in this film also acted in It's a Wonderful Life. Frank Capra, the director, was really a gifted individual.
This film is light and funny, clean and clever, and ends with a good lesson. It was very good, and I plan to watch it again before returning it to Netflix.
I really enjoy films with Jean Arthur and James Stewart. This film also included Spring Byington, another favorite of mine.
