The Palm Beach Story

This movie is very violent! jk. This screenshot sure makes it look like it though.
The Palm Beach Story (1942) starring Claudette Colbert, Joel McCrea, Mary Astor and Rudy Valee. Directed by Preston Sturges.

"For Rent" signs used to be really fancy.
Summary (via) - 
Preston Sturges helmed this screwball comedy about Gerry Jeffers (Claudette Colbert), a woman who'll do anything to help her struggling architect spouse, Tom (Joel McCrea), succeed. When she realizes Tom will never strike it rich, Gerry decides to divorce him, wed a wealthy man and finance Tom's projects -- so she heads to Palm Beach, Fla., where she tries to land eccentric billionaire John D. Hackensacker III (Rudy Vallee).
I don't really have a bushel of comments for this one, but I enjoyed it. So know that.
Honestly, not the most attractive bracelet ever.
Obsessed with the back of this dress.
"Hackensacker" is the best last name ever. The end.
