365 Movies: Double Wedding Review

Double Wedding stars William Powell, Myrna Loy, John Beal, Florence Rice, and Jessie Ralph in this 1937 film. Unhappy with her life, Margit Agnew(Loy) tries her hardest to set her sister, Irene's life up. Displeased with this, but wanting to please her sister, Irene and her future husband, Waldo(Beal) do everything that Margit says to do. Annoyed by her controlling behavior, Charlie(Powell) tries everything in his power to annoy Margit to no end, which works wonderfully. I guess, it comes as no surprise but I looooooove any movie with Bill and Minnie and this is another great example of the chemistry that they had. Even when they are sparring, they are absolutely hilarious together. Everyone was so funny in this movie, especially John Beal. I'm not too familiar with his work, but in this, he was not only adorable but hysterical. A very good comedy, that is definitely worth watching again and again!
