My Favorite Wife (1940)

I love this movie. Cary Grant stars as Nick Arden. When the movie begins he and his fiance are in a courtroom trying to have his wife declared legally dead. She shipwrecked 7 years before and it was believed that she drowned. However, as they are being married by the judge his wife Ellen shows up at their house. Once she realizes that he is taking the new wife to the same hotel they honeymooned at she heads off and that is when the screwball antics occur. This is Cary Grant at his best. He is funny and handsome. Irene Dunne is wonderful as Ellen and Gail Patrick is also terrific as the not so friendly second Mrs Arden. If you love the romantic comedies of the 1940s this is a must see.
