" Oh, I do love Claudette Colbert. Such a tiny little angel-looking thing. It's movies like this that make me sad for folks who won't watch anything that's made in black and white. What a fun screwball comedy this was! Shenanigans!"

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"Another comedy great mostly overlooked by the Academy — spotting a trend, are we? — Preston Sturges only picked up three nods and one win, all for screenplays, for his work, and many of his films weren’t nominated for anything. One of the most notable is his great “The Palm Beach Story,” starring Joel McCrea and Claudette Colbert as two sets of twins embroiled in an unconventional marriage.
