The Palm Beach Story ★★★★

Smack in the middle of Sturges' run of classic screwball films, it has a rather odd structure that had me wondering if it was a sequel, as it opens with a montage that would seem to be from another film. This had me somewhat disoriented for the first act, but amused when it pays off with a brick joke punchline ending. Of course Colbert is a delight, and she pretty much outshines the rest of the cast.
