Sullivan's travels (Sturges, 1941) - TSPDT #171

A rich director tries to research the life of the poor by unsuccessfully living as a tramp.

I could feel that this movie is following some kind of blueprint for romantic comedy, or maybe, invented it for itself. The plot is quite predictable and the twists are silly to say the least. Most of it seems to work due to the absolutely amazing screen presence of Lake. There are some interesting playful attempts at nudity - the shower scene for example must have given the censors a headache and make Sturges grin diabolically.
