The Palm Beach Story (1942)

3 out of 4 stars

This is such a cute movie. Claudette Colbert and Joel McCrea star as Tome and Geraldine Jeffers. They are a young married couple who happen to be broke. One day "Gerry" gets the brilliant idea to leave her husband, marry a rich man and give Tom money to make his dream - an airport suspended over the city. She leaves him and takes the train to Palm Beach where she meets one of the richest men in America. The only hitch in the plan is that Tom has followed her. She has to cover so she says that he's her brother - and the millionaire's sister can't wait to get her claws into Tom. The ending is pretty hokey but a lot of them were back then. All in all this is a funny and enjoyable movie
