When commenting on a film as brilliantly constructed and deeply
as The Palm Beach Story, it's hard to know just where to
Do you tip your hat to the uniformly wonderful performers?
Do you pay tribute to the bizarre and hilarious conversations held by the
Weenie King (Robert Dudley), an incidental character who manages to be a
more than a mere plot contrivance?
Do you mention the fact that the film was clearly an influence upon the
(slightly superior) screwball classic Some Like It Hot?
Nope. You just say, Preston Sturges was a genius and this is his best
Gerry Jeffers (Claudette Colbert) has decided that she needs to divorce
husband Tom (Sturges regular Joel McCrea). Why? We're not quite sure.
Perhaps she's looking for thrills, perhaps she simply wants a partner who
can pay the rent and perhaps she's truly come to believe that she no
loves him. No matter. Her mind is made up and there's nothing Tom can do
about it. Try as he might, Gerry slips through his fingers and ends up on
train to Palm Beach, the divorce capital of the world.
Echoes of Some Like first appear on the train ride when Gerry finds
unable to sleep do to the racket being caused by The Ale and Quail Club.
It's bad enough when they start shooting out windows, and what comes
let's just say that it's a lot funnier than it would be if it happened in
Still, Gerry makes it to Palm Beach, in the company of nutty millionaire
John D. Hackensacker (Rudy Vallee). Things only get really out of hand
Tom arrives and becomes pegged as a bachelor, Captain McGlew. And spoil
of the plot for you I will not.
Sturges was capable of operating in many modes: responsible and patriotic
(Sullivan's Travels) and outrageously madcap (The Miracle of Morgan's
are two that come to mind. But Palm Beach shares its elegance, wit and
reserve with The Lady Eve, in which con artist Barbara Stanwyck sets her
sights on absent-minded professor Henry Fonda. (Even the mistaken identity
plot is similar upon examination).
Between the two, Eve may end on a slightly more graceful note, but Beach
seems to be made with a bit more... well, experience. Sturges seems at his
most relaxed throughout the film and it does a world of good. (The story
bogged down only by brief moments of racism early on). And leaving, it's
hard not to feel sunny and refreshed.
For those in need of a vacation, I recommend a stay at Palm Beach. And the
rest of you should come along as well.
