A scandalous romantic comedy about roomers andirumors.

Arriving in Washington to help with the war effort, Benjamin Dingle (Charles Coburn), a retired, well-to-do millionaire, needs a place to stay. So when patriotic Connie Milligan (Jean Arthur) decides to rent out half her apartment, Mr. Dingle promptly moves in. Firmly believing that everybody's business is everybody's business, Mr. Dingle quickly determines that Connie should be married to a clean-cut nice young man. So he rents out half of his half to Joe Carter (Joel McCrea), an Army sergeant who most certainly fills the bill. But when the newspapers get wind of their "scandalous" living arrangement, it's up to Mr. Dingle to save careers, reputations and a budding romance, in this delightful screwball comedy.

        Comments about this product:

        Pay close attention, the timing in many of the scenes is what makes the movie. It's a hilarious comedy with a subtle love story developing, all thanks to Mr. Dingle as Cupid. My wife and I have rarely laughed so much as when watching this, over and over again. I recommend watching it at least once every 6 months.

            The rapport between the actors is wonderful. You can just see how much fun everyone is having. Loved the romantic scene on the front steps between McCrea and Arthur.

            Wide screen distortion

            Comments about this product:

            This review is not about the film itself, which is just right, but about the conversion to DVD. It looks as though an expansion to wide screen distorted the characters. Jean Arthur looks hippy with fat legs -- pretty sure this is not how I saw it when TCM played it recently.

                      a great movie that showed WWII women as intelligent and independent...it has a lot of fun with flirting and mildly sexually charged situations with women who are more than the equals of the movie's male stars

                      my husband enjoyed it as much as I did... a fun romp thru 1940s Washington with mild jabs at government bureaucrats..

                      an intelligent movie that entertains....it took me MONTHS to track down this DVD and 'I'm glad I did

                          Such a great story about Jean Arthur who is so funny in this movie falling in love with Joel McCrea who rents the 2nd half of her apartment. To me, Charles Coburn is the real star of the show cast perfectly in his role as a senator and also border in the same apartment. Under the circumstances, they all become friends. A really delightful, fun movie.

                                  This Beautiful movie was given as a gift and will be borrowed by the family to watch in their homes. It is a colorful, fun to watch film of the WWII era and I was surprised to find out there was a housing shortage in D.C... The girls car was different (what was it?) and the roof-top patios were unique for someone in the suburbs to see. The hair styles, dresses, and hats were wonderful. Jean Arthur, Joel McCrea, and Charles Coburn are the Best
