DIAMOND JIM 1935 dir. A Edward Sutherland w. Edward Arnold, Jean Arthur, screenplay by Sturges
In the Gay NIneties (that's 1890s!) eccentric millionaire Diamond Jim Brady loves everything-money, diamonds, food and the beautiful Lillian Russell. Based on the life of the great man-he makes Donald Trump look like a bum
NEW YORK TOWN 1941 dir. Charles Vidor w. Fred MacMurray, Mary Martin, Robert Preston
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Martin goes manhunting in Manhatten dutifully and ably assisted by MacMurray in this equally bright comedy partially written (but not credited) by Sturges
