MCMXXXIX XV: Never Say Die

Never Say Die. Elliott Nugent. 1939.

OK, so this is about a hypochondriac millionaire at a spa. I’m guessing there’ll be hi jinx!

Monty Woolley!

This is very funny! And quite risque. As screwball comedies go, it’s very, very screwy. Martha Raye is a comedic genius.

Oh!

Preston Sturges! I should have known! The script is just too good.

The final scene is comedy genius. I laughed and laughed.
