THE GOOD FAIRY
Tuesday, January 24
Directed by William Wyler
Written by Preston Sturges
Starring Margaret Sullavan, Herbert Marshall, Frank Morgan, Reginald Owen
Approx. 97 min. 35mm.
Sturges molded a Ferenc Molnár play into this unsung classic of the comedy-rich 30s, as Margaret Sullavan’s wide-eyed movie usherette Luisa Ginglebusher plays “good fairy” to struggling lawyer Herbert Marshall, despite amorous millionaire Frank Morgan.
“Boasts the quick wit that’s so typical of the screwball comedy, but also a sharply observed critique of predatory masculinity.”
