TELL IT TO THE JUDGE
Forties star Rosalind Russell (His Girl Friday, She Wouldn’t Say Yes) is movie-shorthand for a smart, sophisticated, professional woman of the ‘40s whose career comes before love…until it doesn’t. She’s the epitome of the screwball comedy heroine, and just a little too smart for her own good. So you know that when Marsha Meredith’s (Russell) recent divorce from hubby Pete Webb (Robert Cummings) threatens her appointment to the federal bench, and Webb insists that the divorce was based on a misunderstanding over pretty Ginger Simmons (Marie McDonald), things are going to get complicated. Enter Alexander Darvac (Gig Young, That Touch of Mink), who becomes Marsha’s pigeon for a pretend fiancé, and you have a monumental marital mix-up! Directed by Norman Foster (Father is a Bachelor, Journey into Fear). Newly remastered.
