| A gem!
Joyous dose of whimsy from writer-director Preston Sturges, who always managed to wring both sentiment and cynicism from a fairy tale premise. Here, Dick Powell is a working-class guy who's under the impression he's won $25,000 in a coffee-slogan contest. Short at 70 minutes, but sharp as a tack, this is a wonderful stroll through Hollywood's Golden Era. Powell is terrific and Ellen Drew is equally good as his sweetheart. Watch it and enjoy! ***1/2 from ****
