Forgotten Gem
Verified purchase
A real classic black and white film.
Known for its then darign of Colbert and Gable sharing a room, and of course the icon scene of when Gable removed is shirt to been seen without a vest. Hard to think now that one scene was responsible for a drop in vest (undershirt) sales.
The film is a screw ball comedy of the kind they don't make any more.
Give it a try and you will enjoy it, very much a lost or forgotten gem

Great movie but not in 4k
Although it's been restored. This is pretty grainy. So you might as well buy the dvd.

Before the film started, the tv screen "froze". When the tv problem was resolved, the film would not restart without further payment.
