Netflix sleeve: Tired of churning out fluffy comedies, Hollywood director John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrea) decides to write a serious, socially responsible film about human suffering. When his producers point out that he knows nothing of hardship, he hits the road as a hobo. On his journey, Sullivan invites an out-of-work actress (Veronica Lake) to be his traveling companion, and the pair get into more trouble than they ever dreamed of.
I liked this one. Not really a lot more to say about it. It was entertaining, as romantic comedies sometimes go. I actually watched it a couple weeks ago and have forgotten a lot of the details that would have come to mind if I had written this thing when it was still fresh. I'll try to come up with more to say about Duck Soup, the next movie on the list.
