Easy Living (BLU-RAY)
From Mitchell Leisen, the legendary director of Death Takes a Holiday, Midnight and Remember the Night. Hollywood greats Jean Arthur (A Foreign Affair) and Ray Milland (The Lost Weekend) shine in this screwball comedy written by the great Preston Sturges (Christmas in July).
Mary Smith (Arthur) is a poor working girl who literally has a fortune dropped in her lap when a wealthy financier (Edward Arnold, Meet John Doe) tosses a sable coat out a window and it lands on her. Everyone automatically assumes she’s his mistress, and soon her fairytale-like rags-to-riches lifestyle threatens a very real romance with an inept waiter (Milland). Easy Living is a delightful comedy full of misunderstandings and high-society slapsticks.
