(1942) Sturges’ “Topic A” (S-E-X): under the credits, a maid faints thrice, one Claudette Colbert kicks her way out of a closet, while a second, in a bridal gown, hails a cab. Colbert, on the run from husband Joel McCrea, is  pursued by amorous zillionaire Rudy Vallee — whose man-crazy sister Mary Astor chases McCrea. Then Sturges picks up the pace. Approx. 87 min. 35mm.
