To my utter despair this fantastic old black and white film is not available on DVD. Luckily TCM does play it occasionally and the last time they did I saved it to my DVR and have never erased it! I can watch it whenever I like.
Well today I decided to search it on youtube in hopes of finding any scene to post as one of my "Film Scene I Love" blogs and lo and behold, the entire film is on youtube! I'm posting it here for you all to watch. In it James Stewart marries Ginger Rogers after knowing her only one night. She's a showgirl, he's a college professor. Now Jimmy must take Ginger home and break the news to his stuffy parents and the girl they want him to marry! Hilarity ensues including an awesome catfight between Ginger-the-secret-wife and Frances Mercer who plays the jilted girl. Jimmy and Ginger are so very endearing and adorable together. And bonus, Beulah Bondi plays Jimmy's mother. She played his mother in several films including It's a Wonderful Life but in this one she gets to be a little more dolled up. The scene that she and Ginger share in the powder room, sharing a cigarette and discussing sheer hose is precious. In fact, the entire film is precious. Enjoy.
