Sullivan’s Travels (1941, Preston Sturges)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 2, 2016

Sullivan’s Travels is almost impossibly well-constructed. Director Sturges, editor Stuart Gilmore and photographer John F. Seitz go through various, entirely different narrative devices and do them all perfectly. Whether it’s a high speed chase, Veronica Lake having a screwball comedy s read more

The Lady Eve (1941, Preston Sturges)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 12, 2015

Preston Sturges has a great structure to The Lady Eve. The first part of the film–the majority of the runtime–has wealthy oddball Henry Fonda returning home on a ship and falling in love with Barbara Stanwyck. Makes sense, as she’s wonderful, only she (and her father, Charles Cobu read more

The Palm Beach Story (1942, Preston Sturges)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on May 22, 2015

The Palm Beach Story is a narrative. Director Sturges opens with a rapidly cut prologue showing stars Claudette Colbert and Joel McCrea getting married, where he inserts clues for what will eventually be the film’s utterly pointless deus ex machina. Sure, Palm Beach runs less than ninety minu read more
