The Devil and Miss Jones

The Devil and Miss Jones

IMDB

(1941, Dir. Sam Wood)

The first of three Jean Arthur-Charles Coburn comedies. In this one, tycoon Coburn, concerned about rumblings of his workers unionizing, infiltrates his own department store pretending to be a newly-hired shoe salesman. He is befriended by a fellow clerk (Arthur) and her union-organizing boyfriend (Robert Cummings), and falls in love. It’s never as screwball as it purports to be, and becomes rather dreary in patches.

2.5/5.0
