Description
Famed author Sheridan Whiteside possesses a tongue dipped in venom and a brain that can crack The New York Times crossword in four minutes. On a lecture tour in Ohio, he slips on the ice and is confined to the home of a bourgeois couple. He proceeds to plunge the household into chaos, ruling the place like a czar and meddling in everyone's love life.

Monty Woolley reprises his Broadway triumph as the imperious Whiteside in this delightful, lightning-paced farce. A who's who of Hollywood talents portray a who's who of thinly veiled real-life luminaries ranging from Gertrude Lawrence to Harpo Marx. And Bette Davis shines in an uncharacteristic role as Whiteside's unflappable secretary. The Man Who Came To Dinner: it's a feast of wit and sophistication.

            If you want to see an extremely well acted, cerebral comedy, watch this movie! It is of a genre that decidedly does not exist anymore. It is the funniest movie I have ever seen - a gem.

                    I own this in my personal collection, and gave a copy to my sister for Christmas. It's very funny, with witty dialogue, screwball situations, and memorably offbeat casting. Monty Woolley plays the self-aborbed central charater, whose accidental fall at a private home causes him and his secretary (an understated but effective Bette Davis)to invade this home and turn the homeowner's lives upside down. Ann Sheridan, Jimmy Durante, Billie Burke, and Mary Wickes provide effective support as the story hurtles forward to it hysterical conclusion. A must-see!!

                                      Love all the oder movies. Watch TCM all the time and when there is a movie I really like I try to get it for my own use. My Granddaughters like to watch these movies with me.
