Description
Ginger Rogers requested and received the perfect man for the job when she was paired with James Stewart for this riotous romance between a sizzling nightclub singer and a buttoned-down botany professor. Sent into town to retrieve an errant sib (James Ellison), Prof. Peter Morgan (Stewart) meets and marries show-stopping chanteuse Francey (Rogers) over the course of a single evening. But the stars start crossing against the newlyweds when they travel to Morganís moss-backed college town to break the news to Morganís Mater and Pater (Beulah Bondi and Charles Coburn) and two soon finds themselves conducting a marriage incognito style. With Francey stuck posing as his brotherís girl, a fiancé left behind, a prim and proper college dean father and a mother with a heart condition arrayed against them, their marriage might be sunk before they can even announce it! Director George Stevenís first outing as a producer is a delight.

    I'm an old soul, but there is something special, about black and white comedies, from the 30's & 40's.

        Franklin Pangborn is a comedic genius. Give that man a line and he makes you be there. I love his comedic timing. Beulah Bondi is great as well. Love it when Pangborn, Rogers, and Bondi do the dance together, hilarious! We watch this movie over and over again. It is one of our all time favorites. If you love Stewart and Rogers, you will love this film.

          Jimmy Stewart. Ginger Rogers. Two of the best things about this movie! Actually, there were several fantastic actors in the movie, I just happen to enjoy those two the most. This is one of those movies that is just plain fun to watch. I don't think they could have picked a better cast for this set of characters! They were wonderful to get to know and fun to watch.

          Vivacious Lady is a wonderful film that took me completely by surprise. I didn't expect to fall in love with the characters... I love this movie so much that I kept it on my DVR for 2 or 3 years until TCM released it on DVD - and when I saw it on DVD in the TCM Store, I grabbed it immediately!

              FINALLY I got this on DVD and for stay at home nights this is the comedy for me. I love Ginger's snappy comebacks to the home town girlfriend and the way she looks so dreamily at Jimmy Stewart. Stewart's mother makes me laugh every single time I hear her say...I've spent the best years of my marriage in bed with heart trouble. I don't have any negative comments about this movie.

                    The stars are great, not to mention the superb character actors of Beulah Bondi and Charles Coburn. A delightful comedy.
