    The Awful Truth. A wonderfully absurd 30s comedy. Cary Grant and Irene Dunne are lovely (and she has the most over-the-top clothes).

    SHE DONE HIM WRONG (1933, Paramount). Mae West in her greatest film makes a joke about prostitution in her first line and the talk remains saucy throughout in this Pre-Code classic; one of my very favorite movies. On a relatively small budget Paramount created a pungent and rich 1890s atmosphere populated by smart-talking rough trade. Comedy and melodrama blend in ways that baffle clueless contemporary filmgoers. And there's Cary Grant. Moralists were outraged. 'Nuff said. (KevinR@Ky)

    Now with Criterion's imprimatur, DESIGN FOR LIVING, 1933, Paramount, has rocketed from undeserved obscurity to recognition as the great comedy it is. I've loved it for years and always wondered why this wry, sexy, original, witty deadpan comedy was considered an also-ran. Perhaps being a bastard child of two sources (Noel Coward, stage version; and Ben Hecht, altered screenplay) confused critics. Miriam Hopkins is in her effervescent prime and Gary Cooper still ga-ga's the ladies. (KevinR@Ky)
