Colorized, Already Humorized

by mehaul on Oct 18, 2010

This is a very comical situational film (a sitcom?) where the idiosyncracies of a well to do, self-centered family play themselves out against the reality of the depression. Not being a sad drama, of course love wins the day. I was very taken with the machine gun like delivery of Carole Lombard when putting out her zingers. Her ditzy character (but really smart?) is juxtaposed against her former real life husband, William Powell. The two (went) worked well together. There is a recently colorized version on the DVD along with the original Black & White. Being a Depression Era product there isn't very much color in anything, except Lombard's beautifully coiffed golden hair.
