Mein Leben in Luxus (1937)15K
Mein Leben in Luxus: Directed by Mitchell Leisen. With Jean Arthur, Edward Arnold, Ray Milland, Luis Alberni. When a wealthy banker throws his wife’s expensive fur coat off a roof and it lands on the head of a stenographer, everyone assumes she is his mistress and has access to his millions.
“This is a classic, with one of the great slapstick scenes of all time (in an automat) and wonderful innuendo and great timing throughout the film. Jean Arthur is a splendid comedienne, just lighting up the screen with a wry innocence, and Ray Milland is perfectly cast as someone a little debonair, a little too bourgeois, but ultimately quite charming. Finally, Edward Arnold is a lot of fun to watch as he chews up the scenery. As a long time fan of Preston Sturges who was quite happy to see u0026quot;Miracle at Morgan Creeku0026quot; finally released on DVD, I have to say, it is A CRIME that this little gem isnu0026#39;t available on DVD, just ridiculous.”
