Working for Paramount in the 1940s, in the shadow of war, playwright and scriptwriter Preston Sturges directed a succession of comedies of which "The Palm Beach Story" (1942) is perhaps the finest. An effervescent, quickfire adult fantasy about the driving forces of sex and money starring Claudette Colbert and Joel McCrea, and featuring the Ale and Quail club. John Pym's account here recreates the subtlety and energy of the film.
