The Whole Town's Talking ★★★½

this movie forgets a lot as it moves from point a to point b. it starts out in screwball territory, which was fresh and delightful, and it’s in that first half hour than jean arthur really gets to shine. but once the ball gets rolling, it’s like the movie forgets it’s a comedy, abandoning jean in the process. sad. I wish it kept the same tone throughout because this had the makings for something I would really love.
