About this item
Preston Sturges was the first prominent screenwriter to direct his own script. He went on an unparalleled creative streak that brought to the screen some of the most beloved films of all time. This collection pays tribute to seven of his finest and funniest films, starrring cinema's most illustrious screen stars. "The Great McGinty": An opportunist (Brian Donlevy) turns corruption into a promising political career but struggles to stay on top when he tries to go honest. "Christmas In July": Hope springs eternal when an office clerk (Dick Powell) mistakenly believes he's won a coffee slogan challenge and spends the "prize money." "The Lady Eve": It's the ultimate battle of the sexes when a wealthy heir (Henry Fonda) falls (literally!) for a con woman (Barbara Stanwyck) with a shady past. "Sullivan's Travels": In this comedic masterpiece, a wealthy director (Joel McCrea) wants to find "real" people for his next great film (co-starring Veronica Lake). "The Palm Beach Story": Money makes the world go 'round, or so Gerry (Claudette Colbert) believes when she decides to divorce her struggling husband (Joel McCrea) to support him by marrying a millionaire. "The Great Moment": This stirring biopic follows the fascinating life of W.T.G. Morton (Joel McCrea), a 19th century dentist who successfully develops the first anasthesia. "Hail The Conquering Hero": A quirky soldier (Eddie Bracken) gets an unexpected homecoming when a group of uproarious Marines decides to "make" a hero out of the comic misfit.
