Brand New 4K Master! From Preston Sturges, the legendary writer/director of The Lady Eve, The Great McGinty, The Palm Beach Story and The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek comes this classic screwball comedy full of joy and laughter. A workplace practical joke goes awry when an office clerk (Dick Powell, Pitfall), believing he has won a $25,000 prize, takes his girlfriend (Ellen Drew, The Crooked Way) on an extravagant Christmas shopping spree... in the middle of July. After they discover it was all a hoax, their spending spree turns into a wild slapstick riot. More than just a holiday heart-warmer, this madcap masterpiece is a classic gift of laughter that is perfect for every season. Beautifully shot in black-and-white by the great Victor Milner (Reap the Wild Wind, Cleopatra).
