| Original Score: 3/5
An attractive serio-comic tale of civic corruption.
Part romantic triangle, part Capra-esque hokum, all coast on star power.
| Original Score: 2.75/5
The acting by Cary Grant, Jean Arthur, and Ronald Colman is top-notch.
| Original Score: B
In addition to its status as one of the great screen comedies, the film is a treasure trove of homosexual undercurrents, many of which aren't all that disguised.

Brilliantly directed, acted, scripted thought-provoking comedy
| Original Score: 5/5
The Talk of the Town (1942) is a classic romantic comedy/drama of the 1940s from producer/director George Stevens and Columbia Pictures.
Overblown, too long, and not nearly as much fun as it's cracked up to be.
It may be off beam in its philosophy, but its quality of humor is not strained.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Though verbose, this darkly humorous film benefits from star power of Cary Grant in atypical role, some witty dialogue, and timely subject matter.
Effective, if peculiar, mixture of screwball comedy and political moralising.
The contrivance of plot is compensated by one of the most genial casts in history.
| Original Score: 4/4
