SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS (1941)

One of the best remembered comedies of the great Preston Sturges, about a director who is tired of making comedies.

IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT (1934)

Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert predictably fall for each other in this gleefully larger-than-life early road trip romantic comedy

DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN (1985)

Madonna’s first major movie role was in this extremely 80s update of the screwball comedy.

BRINGING UP BABY (1938)

Perhaps the best known of all screwball comedies, it is a bit too aggressively madcap for me.
