1943 More The Merrier was a pleasant surprise. Jean Arthur and Joel McCrea are thrown together by Charles Coburn in a housing shortage because of the Washington DC housing shortage during World War II. If you have seen Walk Don't Run you'll realize where that movie took its story line. This was a really fun movie to watch, has some very funny scenes and the parady between Coburn and McCrea is the best I've seen in years.

Despite the excellent pedigree of writers, director and cast, this film remains somewhat obscure. This film manages the neat trick of balancing slapstick comedy with palpable romance & seduction. Joel McCrea & Jean Arthur acquit themselves beautifully as star-crossed lovers navigating the housing shortage in Washington DC, right at the conclusion of WWII. If you are a fan of "Ninotchka" "The Lady Eve" or the any films with Katharine Hepburn & Cary Grant, this is a welcome edition to that pantheon.
