  • Why I love Classic Movie Comedies!

    I vote "Tell It To The Judge" (1949) one of the most endearing and entertaining movies in Rosalind Russell's repertoire. Slept on the basement couch in order to catch it at 5 a.m. Friday morning. Entirely worth the inconvenience! Rosalind Russell's evening dress costume at the opening makes me long for colour. She was so strikingly beautiful and elegant while being amazingly funny! Robert Cummings is adorable. I used to "like" him, after this film, I "love" him! It's all about details for me, and the title credits give that `40's feel, and the musical score is as delightful as the cinematography and costuming. Moves right along, and made me wish for a sequel!

  • Great late 40s screwball comedy

    This was an unexpected comedy delight. I thought screwball comedy had died by the mid-40s, so it's great fun to find this gem from later in the decade (1948's 'Julia Misbehaves' is another one too). A previous poster commented on how it could've been better if Grant had been cast. Yes, that's true. And if Errol Flynn had been in the Gig Young role...it definitely would be considered a classic today. (I also think the grandfather role could've been made stronger if Charles Coburn had played it.) But Roz shines as the leading lady, and it's easy to see why Bob Cummings became a household name on television in the 50s. His facial expressions alone are worth the price of admission. And there's something hysterical about seeing him dressed as a train attendant (though I think it would also have been fun to see Cary Grant in that get up). The only part that dragged was the sequence at the light house. I really enjoyed the ski sequence later on in the film. Overall, a fun film with some inspired comic bits.

  • Great script!

    Had Cary Grant played the Robert Cummings role, this would be a classic along the lines of THE AWFUL TRUTH! Roz & Gig are perfect. Truly funny dialogue!
