George S. Kaufman co-wrote this play-turned-film based on the real-life
characters with whom he regularly associated. Alexander Woolcott, the
famed Broadway critic was the inspiration for Sheridan Whiteside, a
publicly loved figure who's private, curmudgeonly demeanor was less
than idyllic. Kaufman even went so far as to have Whiteside
occasionally sing jibberish with a child's speech impediment, which was
a practice of Woolcott's.
Monty Wooley brilliantly delivers the Groucho-like insults penned with
supreme wit by the Marxian play and film write. Kaufman, of course,
co-wrote many of the Marx's best works and was a good friend of Harpo,
upon whom the character "Banjo" is based.
The entire cast is brilliant save for Richard Travis who, while not
distractingly bad, is somewhat outclassed by the likes of Bette Davis,
Billie Burke, Mary Wickes, and Reginald Gardiner.
All in all, this is solid comedy that bears repeated seasonal viewing.
I can't figure out why it's not on DVD. That's not true. I CAN figure
it out. I doubt it would sell large numbers of copies given movie
audiences' limited awareness of the film. What I meant was, I wish it
were available on DVD.
