YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU (1938)

Lionel Barrymore is Grandpa Vanderhof, patriarch of a kooky household of free spirits, including prolifically unpublished playwright daughter Spring Byington and her pyromaniacal husband Samuel S. Hinds; dancer granddaughter Ann Miller and her xylophonist husband Dub Taylor; Russian layabout Mischa Auer and inventor friend Donald Meek. Then there's granddaughter Jean Arthur, the most daring of the bunch: she falls in love with James Stewart, son of corporate raider and arms dealer Edward Arnold. Only screenwriter Robert Riskin and director Frank Capra could make corn like this pop, and they did, winning Best Picture and Best Director OscarsĀ® among seven nominations. DIR/PROD Frank Capra; SCR Robert Riskin, from the play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. U.S., 1938, b&w, 126 min. NOT RATED
