Margaret Sullavan stars as innocent orphan who plays good fairy. Frank Morgan pursues, Reginald Owen protects, and Herbert Marshall falls in love in The Good Fairy (1935), a Universal film directed by William Wyler from a screenplay by Preston Sturges.
Adapted by Columbia from a critically savaged Broadway play by Preston Sturges. Child of Manhattan is saved on screen by its captivating star, Nancy Carroll, who plays taxi-dancer Madeleine McGonagle. With John Boles, Buck Jones, and Jessie Ralph. Directed by Edward Buzzell.
I love “Sullivan’s Travels,” I really do. The 1941 Paramount release from Preston Sturges starring Joel McCrea and Veronica Lake certainly has held up well over the years, growing in legend as each new generation discovers it..
