Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray were two of the biggest stars during the Golden Age of Hollywood. Each wildly successful on their own, they came together in seven films showcasing their magnetic on-screen chemistry. Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray: The Romantic Comedy Collection features three of those unforgettable films from their remarkable careers.

THE GILDED LILY (1935)
This often overlooked comedy gem, marks the first teaming of screen legends Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray and is the epitome of a New York City urban fantasy. Newspaper reporter Peter Dawes (MacMurray) and stenographer Marilyn David (Colbert), nicknamed Lynn, meet regularly on a park bench sharing popcorn along with their dreams. Their budding romance is soon threatened by a chance meeting between Marilyn and Charles Gray (Ray Milland), an English nobleman visiting America. Marilyn’s fantasy of landing a handsome millionaire becomes a reality as she is pursued by Charles in a whirlwind courtship, leaving Peter fighting to reclaim his love. When the press learns of the affair, it turns into an international tabloid scandal for everyone involved.  Directed by Wesley Ruggles, THE GILDED LILY helped launch the career of Fred MacMurray who would make six more films with Claudette Colbert over the years.

THE BRIDE COMES HOME (1936)
A screwball comedy set against the backdrop of Chicago during the Depression finds Jeanette Desmereau (Colbert), a socialite left penniless by the stock market crash who takes a job as a writer for a man's magazine, at the center of a romantic triangle. Her two on-again, off-again suitors just happen to be her hard-boiled editor Cyrus Anderson (MacMurray) and the company's wealthy owner, Jack Bristow (Robert Young). Complicating matters is the fact that Cyrus was originally hired to be Jack’s bodyguard and is constantly fighting his boss’s battles for him. Tempers flare, opposites attract and true love wins out at the end in this fast-paced delight featuring memorable comic turns by supporting players Edgar Kennedy, Donald Meek and William Collier Sr.

FAMILY HONEYMOON (1948)
Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray star as a couple engaged to be married…but there's a hitch! Though it is the first time to the altar for Grant (MacMurray), his bride Katie (Colbert) is a widow with three children and their wedding ceremony becomes a comedy of errors. When their babysitter options fall through, the couple has no choice but to take the kids along on the honeymoon, leading to near-disastrous consequences. Creating an additional strain on the newlyweds is the unexpected arrival of Katie's friend (Rita Johnson), who is in love with Grant and plots to break up the new marriage. Filmed on-location in the Grand Canyon National Park, FAMILY HONEYMOON is the 7th and final film pairing of two of Hollywood’s most unforgettable movie stars.
