Preston Sturges

We had fun the other night watching “The Great McGinty”.  Talk about timely, it’s a film made in 1940, the first film directed by Sturges and it won him an Academy Award for best screenplay.  It’s all about the rise and fall of a common man to political heights via the power of a crime boss; the things that happen could happen to day, maybe are happening today!  Sturges didn’t make many but 8 of them are worth watching.
