A girl who can't make up her mind
In the mood for a fun romantic comedy? I recommend "Tom, Dick, and Harry", a golden oldie released by RKO back in 1941.

Janie, a blue-collar chick played by Ginger Rogers, can't decide which guy she wants to marry. And in the course of the story, she has "an understanding" with each of the three title characters. Tom is an ambitious white-collar car salesman (George Murphy); Dick is a millionaire playboy (Alan Marshal); and Harry is a bohemian mechanic (Burgess Meredith).

In amusing dream sequences, Janie imagines what it would be like to be married to each of them. And in one envelope-pushing scene that must have just barely gotten past the censors, she imagines what it would be like to be married to all of them!

If this storyline turned up in a romantic film or novel nowadays, the heroine would obviously have to end up with Dick. But this movie was made in the 1940s. Therefore none of her three suitors is her inevitable choice. And the film demonstrates wonderfully how the heart knows best, even if it can be full of surprises.
