Great early Sullavan she really shines here. Loved Marshall.
Very enjoyable loved Sullavan. Bondi is wonderful, Marshall handsome.
Este filme é maravilhoso. Uns dos melhores dirigidos por William Wyler. O elenco é fantástico. Tudo é fascinante e o filme mostra uma mensagem muito bonita e fraternal. Ajudar o próximo. Um filme fascinante.
The Good Fairy (1935)
- James Higgins
79/100. Excellent early William Wyler comedy, his expert direction helps the film greatly. Great cast, Margaret Sullivan is wonderful. fine writing by Preston Sturges, Jane Hinton and Farenc Molnar. The script is very intelligently done. It's very entertaining. Frank Morgan does well in a supporting role.
All in all an enjoyable movie. Starts out with a bang then fizzles, then picks up again.
you all know my love for this gal!

As much as I love her in "Shopworn Angel", and "The Shop Around the Corner"; I am enthralled by her perf. in,"The Good Fairy"!!! This movie runs 98 minutes-have U checked to see how much of it is her dialogue?? a GOOD 75% of it! I don't know the details of her split with Mr. Wyler, but if details I know are true-maybe it was 'punishment' to her. The movie was shot in late '34-early '35, and their divorce was final in March of '36. Applying the law in Ca. back then, you had to wait one year after filing for divorce to be final; o that is my question. Mr. Osborne stated that the other cast members asked Mr. Wyler not to 'brow beat' her so much, and just let her act. She cries LOTS of tears in this flic!, and there are lots of lines she has in each scene. She is in almost EVERY scene!
PLAY IT AGAIN, TCM

TCM = The Good Fairy for airing this movie!
I agree - this movie is absolutely delightful & adorable! Love Preston Sturges' lines, especially those performed by Frank Morgan - very funny! And thanks TCM for making this film available for purchase!
Thank you TCM!
The Good Fairy is such a sweet, funny little movie. So easy to relax with. To me the cast is such an eclectic mix - but it works - some of my favorites in this one.
