Ball of Fire 1941
Oh how I wish we had nightclubs like this still..golden age thinker here.
I adore Barbara Stanwyck and this screwball comedy showcases her quick wit and sharp tongue. She plays Sugarpuss O'Shea, a nightclub performer who catches the mind of naive linguistics professor Bertram Potts(Gary Cooper) while he's researching slang terms. Bertram is living with a group of adorable out of touch older gents as they all do their part to complete the encyclopedia they've been working on. Sugarpuss hides out there while under a mob murder investigation, everyone falls smitten.
