It is no secret that my all-time favorite actor is Jimmy Stewart. Every Oscar season, I get an opportunity to catch up on some of his films I haven’t seen. Today, Turner Classic Movies played Vivacious Lady┬áThis two-time academy award nominee was a very fun film.

Ginger Rogers‘ upbeat and fun-loving leading lady is perfect opposite Stewart‘s shy, but stouthearted leading man. The two work amazing together. It is the epitome of the screwball comedic-romance popular in the 30’ and 40’s. I have never been a big fan of Ginger Rogers, but I love her in this.

If you can tear yourself away from whiz-bang special effects and poorly-written blockbusters featuring today’s megastars… movies like these are worth a look. Not only are the actors much more interesting, but the writing is superior to the majority of films released today.

RATING 9 out of 10
